Google (search, maps) have been very flaky for the past hour or so. For example, I can do a search and it'll work fine, then I do another and it hangs. Or I can scroll around in Maps and it'll suddenly refuse to zoom/pan.


This is on my home Voyager connection. All is well on my work connection (Spark?). Is anyone else having issues?

Worldle is quite tricky today, maybe that's the problem?

Delete cookies?! Are you insane?!

I actually found Worldle quite easy, but then discovered the Maps issue while looking at said country afterwards. Interestingly in Street View the street names came up in a character set not used by that country...


In any case, I doubt that there are enough Worldle users to DOS Google Maps :)

Well, just trying it on my other computer and everything seems to be working fine on there. So, apparently not a Voyager/Google issue. As you were :)


Edit: Deleting all Google cookies appears to have fixed it. I've never seen a bad cookie cause a site to completely refuse to load like search was, but I suppose stranger things have happened. Case closed for now!
