I logged onto Google.co.nz, went to click on the image search option in the top right corner - it's gone.

It appears after you type a search phrase and hit enter but I dont want to get results for everything  if I am seaching for images , news, videos, maps, books, apps etc.

Also the front page is NOT RESPONSIVE   - I wonder if google will penalise their own search results?

Are you sure you're actually on the google.co.nz page, and not in, say, your browser's New Tab page or something?

On mobile there is no longer a "view image" button; you can only go to the page that it's embedded in. Why must companies like Google always take a step backwards?

My pet peeve is the Google login page which has now been split into a username page, then a seperate password page.

Despite what Google said about the change allowing them to add other two factor authentication options, I suspect that it's really to inconvenience people so much that they stay logged in permanently.

That too. It's a right pain when you regularly switch between two accounts.

I do as the company I work for runs through Australia so Google naturally picks up google.com.au which is a pita when searching for local results or then wanting to filter down by country

I cant believe people still use the search bar - it's too crude a tool for proper searching ;)   I mourn the loss of advanced searching in goolge. for instance the ! and - (not_) options and advanced terms are munted from where they used to be - constantly dumbed down searches with it guessing (wrongly) what I want.

Also most people search from the address bar which is bad for security.  If you type a url and its wrong - dont guess where to go, let the user know.

It makes logging into SSO enabled accounts a little bit faster though.

GAPPS Admin console is still a mess though, menus hidden within menus hidden within menus....

Don't get me started. A couple of days ago I was trying to search for "gerph multi user" and it was refusing to search for it, instead searching for "graph". There used to be an extra line for "did you mean?" but it seems to be gone now.
