English names

For clarity:
'Plan' is 'Map'
'Relief' is 'Terrain' and
'Mixte' is 'Hybrid'
en anglais.

OSM is now the winner...

While Gmaps had a slight advantage over OSM back in 2008, OpenStreetMap is now well ahead.
It looks like I'll need to change the default to OSM.

I like OSM more, but I am in

I like OSM more, but I am in dubio about the 'default':
- I feel little remorse for Google's bandwith, while OSM's traffic with people only loading one view then switching to Google is much harder.
- reversely, when Google Maps is hit, you give up some information to Google involuntarily. The implications of this however are probably minute.
