Google Maps adds Terrain View


Google Maps has received an update - it now has a Terrain view. The option appears where the Hybrid button used to appear. Don't worry, they haven't gotten rid of Hybrid! It's now a part of the Satellite button (a checkbox appears below the button that allows you to toggle "Labels" - which are the street/road/highway/etc.. names).
