What's better? MapQuest, Y! Maps, Windows Live Maps, or Google Maps?
I'm the kind of person who wants to see traffic, good simple directions, I love aerial images! 3D is awesome too, easy to use, and fast.
Any answers would be awesome! I just want your opinion.

Y! Maps happens to be real lame.
MapQuest still pretty much has the old clunky UI.
Google Maps is good, but not good enough.
Live Maps is the best!
Live Maps is way better than the other 3.
With Live Maps you have:
1. A simple UI
2. 3D city views (and in color!)
3. up-to-the-hour traffic reports (before Google did this!)
4. Birds-eye-view - Kind of like aerial, but has much more detail and closeness
5. Awesome driving directions
6. Personalized maps (with pushpins!)
7. Maps happen to look much more better (using the Virtual Earth platform)
8. Search for local things around you, like pizza, dry cleaners, Starbucks, etc.
9. More better printing customization
10. Speedy. Relatively fast in 2D mode. 3D mode can take a while though.
So there you have it : Live Maps is the best! It works for me, and lots of my friends.
And it's continuing to get better. A new UI update is coming. Check out Live Maps: http://maps.live.com/
