Is GWT Search Queries page remembering my web filters?

Hey, did I miss an announcement? When I went by GWT and looked at Search Queries, there was a new little box: It remembered my filter (Web only) from the previous visit. Nice. Saves a step. It was there yesterday and today.

Or is the remembering part just a coincidence, and it's letting us know that it now defaults to Web instead of All? I want to hear from someone who normally sets a different filter.

Lucy, I can't confirm or deny this based on my own accounts. Are you still seeing the "memory" of previous settings?

I did some experimenting between two browsers and two sites-- setting different filters or none and then quitting gwt. I think the change is that it now defaults to "web" and says so. Doesn't matter what my most recent setting was.

Does this mean that most people change their filter to "web" as soon as they find the option, so g### has caved in and made it the default?

Thanks to hitting the wrong login page, I also learned that linkable accounts include Facebook, Yahoo, Flicker, LinkedIn, Twitter, Yelp, Hotmail-- and a bunch more I've never even heard of. That's presumably omitting the ones like YouTube that can never be un-linked.
