Now Link Your Google Chat with Google Map

Another Interesting Feature in Google Chat.

When you type a link to Google Maps search results in Gmail Chat, iGoogle Chat or orkut’s chat box, Google replaces the long URL with the Google Maps query. Google Maps URLs are usually very long because they include a lot of parameters, but Google should do a better job at removing extraneous parameters.

“On the Gmail version of Google Talk, Google now shortens the links and makes them readable. For example, it changes the link: http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode=&q=HEB+near+college+station,+tx&sll=30.606817,-96.309929&sspn=0.050086,0.090895&ie=UTF8&hq=HEB&hnear=College+Station,+TX&ll=30.6128,-96.318512&spn=0.050083,0.090895&z=14 to a link where the text is HEB near College Station, TX,” noticed Korben, a reader of this blog.
