Google Removed Only Way To Get To Old Google Design

About ten days ago, we reported on a way to get to the old Google design after Google launched their redesign. Back then, you could have accessed the clean Google at google.com/webhp?hl=all but now, that also redirects you to the new design.

There are ways to get the old design still, using browser extensions and add-ons but there is no longer a Google URL to take you to the old design.

People have been downplaying this new design as something most searchers like. Honestly, the Google forums are polluted with complaints. It seems like every other thread in the forum is a complaint about the new design. Many, no idea on the percentage, do not like the new design, but Google is committed to it.

Are there any URLs out there that I am missing where you can access the old Google interface?

Hi Barry...not to google.com -- but up here in .ca land, google.ca still runs the older look/functionality, eh! Dunno if that's good or bad tho! Jim
