    Knowing Google since a long time, I have a hunch that they will probably let the old interface intact and won’t take it down.

    On the other hand, they are “THE Google” and they can and will do anything they wish. So better to keep our fingers crossed and use the old interface until we can!

    The “hl=all” fix really sucks for ppl (like me) that use IE. Particularly the missing ‘search suggestion’
    function and also inability to change SafeSearch setting among other things. I just don’t want Google to think of “hl=all” as an acceptable alternative and not restore a classic Google with full functionality.

    Not working anymore
    Please, provide another solution. I hate the new interface.

    Well there’s this script:
    Can work with either Stylish or Greasemonkey (possibly Chrome too?), and reverts most of the interface to how it used to look like (slightly different in some areas). It was made and tested in conjunction with adblockplus, so I don’t know if it will work properly without it.

    In recent days the Google search bar on my Mozilla Firefox browser screen has ceased to deliver me the search options of ‘all pages’ or ‘pages from Australia’ when I click it.

    I am running Ubuntu Linux 8.4 and have deliberately chosen to make no upgrades to my OS or browser. I did not ask for this change to the look of the Google search page, and I don’t wish to have to negotiate a learning curve to either customize the new version or restore the old version. Why could not this change have been one to be made at MY option?

    Google has succeeded in degrading the immediate usefulness to me of its search engine. Google has shown that it does not value my time or priorities as a user, priorities which at this point do not include learning a new interface.

    Not happy, Jan! (And to search for the significance of that expression you would probably get the quickest result from a search of ‘pages from Australia’, which undoubtedly you know how to do, but I now don’t.)

    Google Chrome WAS wonderful just the way it was, have used it for years throughout my many computers but you’ve ?modernized? (higher-ups must be so lazy they want everything on one web page!)

    Developers have a habbit of changing things around too much. If they left it alone they will have no job and you would not be on this page reading this post. Facebook is worse for changing things around.
