Google has announced that they have made some enhancements for Street View. Now, instead of clicking on "Street view" on the top rightmost corner of the map, you can click on Google's little "pegman" and put him on the map. As soon as you do, street view will be activated. Additionally, a mini-map is now visible on the bottom right hand corner that lets you see the map while enjoying street view. Google has also made navigation a tad easier with scroll-wheel-enabled mice and navigation control arrows on the upper left hand corner of the map. Finally, images can now easily be reported by clicking on the "Report a concern" link that's visible on all images.

Here's a video of these features:

What do you think? Google is taking your feedback in this form, so if you want to let them know what's on your mind, be sure to click on that link and give them some insights.
