Features that are different in regular MapQuest include a more prominent placement of a map on the homepage of the website and the ability to cut and paste addresses and default locations. Unlike MapQuest Classic, the regular MapQuest released in 2008 stores recent searches on the website.
The classic MapQuest required users to type all elements of an address to complete a search, without a cut and paste function. It also lacked traffic information, which is available on the regular MapQuest. The regular MapQuest offers a map to the home, with a starting location based on the current location or a personal setting.
