They should have kept it in beta, it's still not ready. If it was there wouldn't be so many people complaining only hours after they removed the legacy tool. And lets see what happen in the next days.

Most Non-english keywords I tried got only useless suggestions, and wrong data.
And even for popular keywords, are there no people in Germany searching for Macbook ? And none uses Google.com, only Google.de or search partners?
I can tell you that I never search using my Google.tld, I always switch to .com

It looks to me that the new tool should still be in Beta.
Two things I noticed yesterday:
- It shows 3 keywords for a certain group, but when I click onto it, it shows none. It happened many times. - I ask for inclusive results (to show keywords with my terms only) and I get i.e. 4 keywords. When I ask for results with "All keyword ideas" I get more then 4 that include my terms.
In short, the new tool takes way more time then the old one.
Plus, when I did the same thing with the old tool, I got more results including my terms. Also, when terms get grouped, they're shown, not like in the new one, shows the number, and then empty.

I want the data from their search partners, not just from Google.com
Google may have a big quota on the search market but it's a mistake to think it's all from people going directly to Google.com
There are portals with millions and millions of visitors that use their search, and now the new tool doesn't include that data.
Aren't those visitors as valuable as the others?
Google: Clean the flaws at the new tool and give the option of adding the search numbers from Partners.
