Google Maps works by asynchronously downloading tiles of map/satellite data as you navigate around the map.  Lately, I've noticed that it has been rendering the wrong tiles in Where's Tim occasionally.  I've only noticed this in FireFox though.

Anybody else seeing this?

Yes, I've seen this many times. I believe it to be a firefox image cache issue. Sometimes the tiles aren't even Google Maps tiles, they are images from websites I've been to recently.

That makes sense. I've only seen this "feature" on sites that run Google Maps. I wonder what makes this happen.
