Google removes helpful links. Is it messing with my head?

November 8, 2010 No Comment

Update: The links have come back. So it was a bug. Phew. Original: Google appears to have inflicted its latest insane test on me (either that or it's a repeat of this bug from last year. I hope so...). This time it's removed the handy links which let you swap between a web search, image search, news search etc when you're looking at a page of results. And also those that let you log in to your google accounts from a results page. All the links are still there on the Google home page.

Here is the home page with the useful links at the top:

With helpful links at the top

Here is a results page without the useful links at the top:

Let's hope it is a bug again as it's really annoying ...
