I imagine this one might be controversial, or not overly popular, but I just wanted to note there's some argument FOR this kind of feature, for those wanting to DeGoogle, but also where Apple Maps can actually now be superior to Google (it's possible, outside of the US!)
While ReMap for Safari is available https://apps.apple.com/au/app/remap-for-safari/id1436676210?mt=12 of course Orion only supports Chrome/Firefox extensions and those audiences are less likely to want such an extension.
I already have this enabled on Mac and iOS for Safari, where it's obviously even more relevant — even if someone sends me a Google Maps link, I don't need it installed or have to use the web version to navigate.
I can see this is a relatively niche feature, but as a Mac-specific browser I can see argument for Orion considering this feature, and from a strategic stand point (re Kagi search) it might be good to help said users not being drawn back into Google's orbit.
One could expect DuckDuckGo's upcoming browser will, if not re-routing Google Maps, at least try to favour location searches to their Maps UI (which is of course a web frontend for Apple Maps.)
