On Friday, Justin Mosebach of Improve and Grow , Lancaster PA pointed out some new, very annoying behavior happening within Google Maps.
When the business listing shows a business URL in Chrome, it now opens a new window “without any tab bar, bookmark bar, etc”. It does not happen in Mac Safari but according to Justin, he has seen this new behavior on all other browsers.
Bug or feature? It seems like a bug but who knows.
