I don't have any plugin installed and I don't have installed Google Earth (it slows down my laptop and google maps it's fine for me).

Looks good, but doesn't work over here as well.

Try driving in the UK during heavy rain or during twilights. Most drivers will, at most, put on their parking lights...

Isn;t the feature there for some time already? I remember seeing it there some half a year ago.

Yes, that's what I said. I can imagine 1 and 76 zeros behind it, but I can't imagine 1 and 10^76 zeros behind it.

It works fine over here. Looks like you're following a car from a helicopter.

Also: All new cars since 2011 have DRL diod lights, so this will change.

That is, all western brands are equipped with this feature.

So DRL is going to be common in all over the world.

I don't know if all american, chinese and indian brands also have these lights ?

For Sweden: the new DRL work without rear lights. This was previously not allowed, but now you don't have to use rear lights on the newer cars,which means less power consumption.

Yes, but vast majority of people leave them on also inside the city. As a matter of fact, I guess people think that it is mandatory everywhere.

Today I changed my wireless router with a newer model and my internet connection speed raised a lot. It works much better now.

You have to tell us which router you had and which you have now.

Good and bad changes on Google Maps:

- good: it incorporated information on winter road closures ("seasonally closed routes"), at least for some countries I checked

- bad: the normal pathfinding will avoid such sectors subject to winter closure altogether, unless you put a waypoint directly over them
