Google's irritating new Search Behavior
Google search now behaves a bit differently, and I find it quite annoying. Enter a search into Google, say "Romney" for instance. You get web results, with a few news results thrown in. Now, if you want to see a bunch of Romney images, click the "images" tab at the top of the page and, sure enough, you get lots of images as expected. But what happens if you want Romney news stories? Clicking the "news" tab at the top of the page takes you to news stories, sans the original search results. Google clears the search parameter. If you want news stories specific to Romney, you must re-enter the search term and click again. Why did they do this?
