I will miss being able to look up and down the street also.
There's something else I miss from the old family search that i've not found on the new site.
I found it very useful to be able to put in parents names and get a list of all the children born to that family.
When the 1911 cencus revealed total number of children born and total number that died I've found those children in this way.
I'll wait eagerly for someone to point out some brilliant "new" feature that no other site has.
