    Anyone else noticed google has got rid of the search uk websites or search whole of the web tick boxes.

    If so is this annoying you as much as it is me?

    Just looked, it's not an option on the main page but comes up on the left after you've done a search, well it does on mine anyway.

    Using Firefox on Win7, it's below the Google logo where it says "Pages from the UK"
     
  8. Once you have clicked on 'Google Search', to the left of the results page is 'pages from the UK'

    ..and 3 answers come at once ;)

    It probably depends on the browser you are using. Here at work we have IE6 and they are there on the main page where they have always been.

    At home I certainly have noticed a difference between browsers (Chrome, Firefox & EI) with some of the way that Google works. It may also make a difference with the O/S you are running.

    Yes google/Mr Summerdays have changed something so that it displays differently on one computer ... and I'm not keen on the change.

    It's a pity that you can't set UK as a default option in Google, but I haven't found a way to do it.

    Set your bookmark to google.co.uk rather than google.com?
