View maps in Google search results

I came across a new (to me) feature of Google today: inline maps.

When a page has an address inside, Google offers to display a map:

Closed Google Map

Clicking on the [+] expands the image:

Open Google Map

This is just a fixed image, not a AJAX scrolling panel. Clicking on the map sends you to the full AJAXy Google Maps site.

Interestingly enough, this feature went away when I logged out, so it may or may not work for you.
