"Remove This Frame" Image Search Option. Removed?

Am I crazy or is it a recent change?

I distinctly remember seeing (and using) the "Remove This Frame" option in Google Image Search results - it appeared in the upper frame once you clicked on an image to view it "in context" (i.e. on the source page). Naturally, clicking on the link allowed you visit the page without the Google frame hanging over it. Now this useful button appears to be gone.

Was it ever there? (I'm not crazy, right?) And if so, why on earth would they remove this?

I was stunned that it was gone, too. It took me a remarkable amount of time to notice that the link was still there, but renamed and moved to the other side of the screen.

I've also noticed it bouncing back and forth between the two layouts over the past couple of days, so not everyone may be seeing this yet.

No "return to search results" either making it impossible to know what keywords users have used to find my images.

yes that was changed 1-2 weeks ago with this new google image update, I dont like it. Today I also see a change in filter, which was ok yesterday, but today they have made a change again so a lot of images are again filtered without reson, with "moderate search on"
