Please change the search back! Answered

 I dont't like the google custom search because there's no pictures and the old search was better.  Maybe could you at least put the old one back and still have the new one too?

I absolutely abhor the lessened functionality of not being able to refine your search by tag; it was something I used often. I can just be more specific about my search but it is not nearly as effective.

I totally agree, ever since they changed non of my  new instructables have come up in the search eg Pc Pranks, its only when i select graphical search when they come up. Its as if it takes total disregard for what you searched and does its own thing. has google worked out a self thinking search box

The old search was more focused (you could select individual kinds of data (I'bles, forums, etc.) but in fact it missed a lot of known content.  The Google search is more complete, but less organized (and I hate the ads, too).

As LoneWolf said, you can use the "Graphical Search" link which comes up along with your results to see the old style.

They've already done that, now affter you enter a search, there's ano option for "Graphical Search" which takes it back to the old layout.
