I love how Google understates new features

Well the blogosphere is abuzz with Google Maps' seamless ability to flip back and forth between Map View and Satellite View. (Pity the satellite maps aren't detailed for my Canadian hometown).

What strikes me is how Google understates new features. They might have the most amazing, cool, dazzling new feature (like this one), but all they have is a little link off to the side. When they get particularly excited about something, they might say "New!" in red:

Of course Google is fully aware that they are totally awesome.
