It looks to me as if the good old Adwords Keyword Tool is being (slowly) retired.
When I click [url]https://adwords.google.com/select/KeywordToolExternal[/url] I am redirected to [url]https://adwords.google.com/o/Targeting/Explorer?__u=1000000000&__c=1000000000&stylePrefOverride=2#search.none!ideaType=KEYWORD&requestType=IDEAS[/url] which looks very similar to the SBKT [google.com ]
This saddens me somewhat. I think there are some functions of the old interface that have not made it to the newer tool.
Categorization of results under broad keyword headings Keyword suggestions from a specific URL More than 100 results for a specific keyword A trickier interface

Thanks for your reply eWhisper.
I see this thread has been picked up by a couple of SEO news aggregators and that a reply from Google has been received.
Google told me they do plan on phasing out the old tool for the new tool, but would not give me an estimated date for that to occur. It is my understanding that Google wants to wait to hear any feedback prior to making that decision.
