Mapquest recently rolled out a complete redesign, but it didn’t stop there. This week, the site made some additional adjustments, such as Full Map View and zoom via mouse scroll.

With Full Map View, users can now collapse the left pane to view a map that’s as wide as the browser window. "This is a great option for those of you that are visual and like to see as much map as possible," says Mapquest’s Ann Koerner.

With the other new feature, users can hover their mouse over the map and use the scroll wheel of the mouse to zoom in or out. Koerner says they made some other minor changes to other features and fixed some bugs, but did not specify.

Mapquest also announced this past week that it has expanded its live traffic coverage, which now includes over a quarter-million miles of roads in North American cities.
