[OSM-dev] Fst tile browser.

I built a "fast tile browser" that, because of all the flash and
javascript is faster than the normal map browser at openstreetmap.org.

It simply shows 4 tiles, zooms to that tile if you click on it, goes
left, right, up or down if you click on those words (which are
conveniently placed left, right ...), and it zooms out when you clikc
the link "zoom out".

Nothing fancy, but extremely quick and plain. 

Does anybody feel that this is useful for the general public?

It's 100 lines of PHP.
