google maps no longer accessible in web browser control on AD

Very recently the behavior of Google maps seems to have changed when I try to access it via a web browser control on a workspace in the AD -- the Windows app, not the browser version.

When I place a browser control on a custom workspace (in this case, in a new tab on the Contact workspace), I can set the URL for the browser to http://google.com successfully.  But if I set the URL to http://google.com/maps, I get an error message from Google saying the browser I am using is unsupported.

I know Google apps are picky about browsers, but if I use a link in my custom workspace, rather than a browser control, so that the Google maps URL opens in a new window, it works just fine. I can also access maps manually from my desktop with Chrome, Firefox (my default)  or IE directly, so the browser itself isn't really unsupported.

Howdy, Stranger!
