It may also be that it requires features specific to *Google Chrome*---the
"Chrome" browser in the FreeBSD ports tree is Chromium, which lacks some of the
embedded plugins the branded Chrome browser has.

Frankly, the only thing that really seems to be missing from the the "lite"
version of Google Maps is the ability to let a large data-mining firm feed
details of your life to a computer so said computer can do all your thinking for
you. Nothing lost, if you ask me. ;)
