Been using it for months now.... Almost a year I think.
Its quite effective. Expect bugs though...

XCOM,

I think it is nice to have it figure out your route and let you know the driving conditions all in one webpage....
If it is has been experimental for a year that could mean it might disappear anytime soon :) KML

I think I posted that link a while back and was also told it's been out a while.

My only issue with it is the loading time. It is NOT friendly for people who do not have a quick internet connection. It works pretty darn well (It was thought of at NWS- Charleston, WV 8-) ) at school, but it's not useful at all at home unfortunately, and I download around 125kb/sec.

Farmtalk,

I never noticed that before...  I have a decent IP but it is one of my slower loads. 
Maybe if they moved it more mainstream they could get more resources devoted to it.

I'm not degrading the program at all. I think it's up there with Simuawips, Bufkit, and a couple others in terms of the best free resources. Just for whatever reason, it does not load well at all on slower connections. That's been tried on chrome and firefox. But once I'm at school with the wired internet (Which downloads more around 15mb/sec), it loads like a gem.
