Display a Miniature Google Maps App for Easy Searching

SUMMARY: Need to search Google Maps but don't want to open a new tab or window? This extension makes Google Maps a click away via a pop-up.

Do you frequently need to search for an address or directions via Google Maps but don't want to keep it open as a new tab inside Google Chrome?

With the "Mini Google Maps" extension you can have this useful app a click-away on the Address Bar. Instead of opening Google Maps in a new tab, a popup appears over the currently browsed website. Find an address, display a map, then when you're done, click the button again and it's gone - simple as that.
