    Whenever I go into google maps the map zoom bar on the left side is gone. I got my mac a few months ago and it worked for a while but it just disappeared one day. I don't know if I did an update around that time or not. You can still zoom with the scroll wheel but it would be nice to have the bar. Any ideas?

    Another complaint I have about Safari and Google Maps is it's slower and the maps load in big square blocks and lag unlike on a PC. Has anyone else noticed this?

    I've had too many headaches using Google Maps on Safari. I just use FireFox. :(

    Sounds like what I'm seeing. Google Maps always used to work perfectly in Safari. Now it seems to have lost the controls on the left as well as the Map/Satellite/Terrain buttons on the right. :( This is a very recently change though.

    That's strange, after not working for a couple of months it came back for me. Maybe it was the last round of updates that did it. The performance still isn't as good as IE though.

    Safari behaves a little better on a faster connection but it's still flaky for me on Google Maps.

    It works in Safari if I visit an international version of the site. I'm at maps.google.ca and it's working flawlessly. So it's not a problem with Safari. Google is just feeding Safari users in the US (at least, some of us) a weird broken version of the site.
