It seems like Google News is constantly going through tests. Besides for the ones reported yesterday with editors picks and the one from last week with sharing options, Google seems to have pulled the Google News "Search The Web" button.

Here is a picture of the Google News Search box without the "Search The Web" option:

Now it only says "Search News" and users want to also search the web.

We have tons of complaints in the Google forums. One person said:

I will have to stop using Google News as a homepage if I can't get one-click access to web search anymore. BRING IT BACK, PLEASE!

We have dozens of threads in the forums but here are just a few.
