Editors' review

Sometimes it's the simple browser extensions that impress us the most. We can't tell you how many times we've looked up an address--usually of a business--and then copied and pasted it into Google Maps so that we could see exactly where it was. Streetmap simplifies this process by launching three different mapping services from Firefox's Context menu. Even though the extension is meant to be used in the United Kingdom, its Google Maps feature works just fine in the United States and elsewhere.

Streetmap installs easily, and using it is a piece of cake as well. Simply highlight the address you want to look up, right-click, and select Streetmap from the Context menu. From there you can choose to map your location with streetmap.co.uk, multimap.co.uk, or maps.google.co.uk. All three of these sites can handle full addresses or just postal codes, although we did find that Google Maps worked better than the others when it came to addresses that weren't formatted perfectly. The extension has a handful of options, including the ability to specify whether the map opens in a new tab or window, and you can choose to have Streetmap focus on locations in London. There's no Help file, but the extension doesn't really need one; everything about it is pretty straightforward. Overall, Streetmap doesn't earn our praise for being packed full of features--it's not--but for simplifying a very common task and saving us a few seconds and mouse clicks.

Streetmap installs and uninstalls without issues. We recommend this add-on to all users.
