>  1. Zoom in using the (+) at top left.  Note that the feed slows down.
>     It only shows bites that have geolocals in the current viewport.
>  2. Pan by grabbing the map and sliding it around.  Note that the
>     content of the feed changes with each pan.  It refilters itself to

>     you zoom in further.)
>  3. Press the back button.  Navigation is now geared to the pan/zoom

>     bookmarkable from the address bar, too.
>  4. Switch to a different base layer using the (+) at top right.  Note
>     that the layer controls are independent of the navigation and
>     pan/zoom controls.  So you can revisit previous screens using the
>     back/forth buttons, even while switching layers.
>     Layers aren't bookmarkable, if we keep it this way.

Could you please default to osmrender? I couldn't load the page at all before 
allowing the Google.com-Javascript :-/
