Finding Stuff on Google
Is there any hope of this feature being returned? It's obvious just from these few posts that it is already being missed. It was a wonderful tool and nothing else on Google compares, both for the type of information and the ordering of it. I'm a university student and half way through my dissertation and have just logged on to try and find a date about some information that I stumbled across in the first place on timeline only to find that it's gone and nothing replaces it and I now have to rewrite a substantial chunk of my work to date and refocus my research in a slightly different area. This is the first time I have ever had cause to be displeased or unsatisfied with Google and have ended up using other search engines. Most disappointing.
