I clicked on the "Try MapsGL" button in Google Maps. After trying it, I decide, that I want to go back to old maps, as they require less resources on my old PC. But the button to switch back is nowhere to be found. How do I go back to old maps?

One way is to add vector=0 to the end of your URL string parameters. So your maps URL would be http://maps.google.com/?vector=0. This will tell the maps not to use MapsGL.

Alternatively, if you want to switch back to MapsGL, put vector=1 in your URL.
