Last night I found the top navigation links on Google (You+ Images News etc), have been replaced with the instruction:

Welcome to the new way to navigate Google. Roll over the logo to have a look.

Hard to understand why they'd add more complexity to the navigation. Now if I want "News", I have to hover, scroll down, then click -- yesterday I could just "click".

Maybe they are trying to improve their content "above the fold" so they are not penalized ;)

Use Google Advanced Search. Nothing ever changes.

Then you'll never see what the other 99.9999999999% of the world, (non-webmasters), ever see.

Heh. I put Advanced Search on my bookmarks bar because it gives what I want as a human. Er, I mean, as a user.

I've also set my default results page to 30, so "top 10" has no meaning to me. When I need to know what the webmasters are talking about, I have to type stuff in manually. And change browsers to one whose ad blocker is less aggressive and that doesn't have an accumulation of search-pref cookies and behind-the-scenes UA data.
