Sometimes I wish to rotate a map, I can do this with scribblemaps, but it is more of a drawing tool then a plain map view. Is there a better solution?
Google Maps has a set of features in Labs just like GMail does.
NOT WHAT YOU "SHOULD" USE
That has already been answered... but...
You could always try the Aviary Screen Capture Google Chrome Extension.
It will allow you to rotate anything in your browser.
