Cool Sites

Something different today.  Three examples that raise the bar in web
interaction, without the need for any special plugins.  However they
may only work with recent versions of browsers.

1. Map: Switzerland
Interactive map of Switzerland allowing you to zoom in and pan around.
It uses satellite images, and includes streets.  My advice is to pick
a city, eg Bern:
and zoom in to see more detail.  This is awesome stuff!

2. Google Suggest
"As you type into the search box, Google Suggest guesses what you're
 typing and offers suggestions in real time"

3. B-List Flashback [from July 2004]: DHTML Lemmings
Play the classic game Lemmings™ in your browser.  It even uses cookies
to remember the level you last completed
