Yahoo! Maps in Full Javascript

Yahoo! developer blogs announced this in its post today. If you noticed, the previous Yahoo! Maps was build in hybrid of Flash and Javascript. I red somewhere that it was built in Adobe Flex. But now, it is full Javascript. The great thing is you can’t see the difference. Yeah, they’re good.


The important point and quite bothering me is this,

Lead Maps Developer Mirek Grymuza and the Maps team have done an amazing job of seamlessly moving the Maps client over resulting in at least double the performance of the previous Flash-based version

which brings me again to a question wheather flash based (or Flex based) apps is that slow comparing with Javascript.

Anyway, the enhanced version of Yahoo! Maps AJAX API with this new full Javascript version of the maps will be available in 2008.
