Interestingly over in the UK I'm not seeing any of this functionality at all! Even when I go to Google.com and run the same search I'm just getting traditional results - no wheels, no search refinement tools - nothing! Just how irritating is that - and so unnecessary!

How frustrating! I thought I was losing my mind when I couldn't find the link on IE... PhilB, have you tried logging on to the US version of Google?


The "search tools" are just an experiment at this point for some users. See more at
http://searchengineland.com/google-wonder-wheel-17093 and for a way to try and see it yourself with some JavaScript code to set a cookie, see http://blogoscoped.com/archive/2009-03-24-n84.html

I could only get the cookie code to work in IE and not Firefox. And Danny's screenshots (and my experience) have slight permutation of the link language as "show options."
