You arrive in a foreign city, with a basic map and the understanding that you'll be able to get around your destination, without too much hassle. You then spend an hour trying to find your destination, leaving you completely lost. How do you find out where you are, so you can find a way to your destination?
Easy. Most of us have our laptop or portable media device with a copy of Firefox or Internet Explorer, so why not use our electronic device to find our current location? You can then quickly location a route through your destination from the map provided. This is exactly what Loki for Firefox will do. It's an extension for Firefox that enables you locate your current location and also find important and useful points of interest around your current location.
Note that this is currently suitable for users based in the US or intending to visit a US city. European and UK coverage will begin at the end of 2006. Don't let this stop you downloading an excellent Firefox add-in though.
