Once again Google Maps accessible on Windows Phone browser

Previous week we saw that the mobile web version of Google Maps service was not accessible through the IE (Internet Explorer) browser on Windows Phone. Although the service was not officially supported because IE does not run on the WebKit engine that the site is optimized for.

Now, 1 week and lots of outrage later, the Google Maps website is now again accessible on IE on Windows Phone. Admittedly, it would not run as smoothly as it runs on iOS or Android devices because it’s still optimized for WebKit, but at least you can use it.
