For the whole world. Go anywhere (...) And the site is so fast now that you can cover lots of terrain very quickly. And always more of interest is waiting, one or two clicks away, all though a tight and consistent UI. Very little to figure out while finding and wandering. The UI is becoming nicely transparent, which has not been easy, given how much content and metadata complexity there is behind it."
