Google has added two new pin drop animations to the Maps API v3 for developers to integrate into their map applications, which are too sophisticated to be used in IE6.
Regardless, the new pin dropping animations are nice. Developers can now enable pins to bounce indefinitely, which is pretty eye catching – we could certainly see highlighted venues for instance getting the infinite bounce treatment (i.e. pay a little extra to get your pin to bounce). The second animation is more subtle, which adds a small bounce to dropping a pin.
