If you hate it as much as I do and use Firefox, install this Greasemonkey script, making sure you have Greasemonkey installed first.
tristanb: A temporary fix is to change your homepage to http://www.google.co.nz/webhp?hl=all . (I say temporary because Google will likely put an end to this page)
tristanb: If I wanted a sidebar, I'd use Bing. If I wanted clutter, I'd use Yahoo!
manta: The results from google.co.nz are different depending on whether you select(ed) "google search", or "Pages from NZ".
With the "old" version of google, if you wanted pages from NZ it was a radio button click and one search. Now it is a search and then another search.
So nothing to do with checking my system; merely a wish that we could choose which option we wanted as a default.
tristanb: I've just discovered that using IE 6.0 gets the old Google.
Does anyone have a user-agent changer for firefox?
If so, are you able to try "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0)" limited to google.co*?

With the increasing number of websites removing support for Internet Explorer 6.0 on new features, changing your user-agent string is a sure way to get stuck.
dman: I like the way how they have more of the features out at my finger tips, rather than buried a little deeper but I really really wish they didn't still have bits hidden on the left hand. As I'm still getting the feeling that for a lot of common stuff I'm having to do a lot more clicks than I used to be which is really annoying
