So - we Google Chromed.
Now, I believe that you stay young by continuing to learn/do new things; but this is truly annoying. I had diligently saved the internet things that I need into my "favorites" box so that I could find them easily, but apparently Google Chrome didn't think I needed them anymore.
So - I searched the FAQ section.
After a few clicks, I had my favs back again; but I want the old way back again.
I don't want to search, I just want to find.
I don't want to know how it works, I just want it to work.
But in the spirit of learning/doing new things, I found the answer to my question. Not sure I like the new Google, though. Your history is displayed for all to see. No more hidden searches - everyone knows that I was looking at new spinning wheels. I know the kids played Runescape while I was gone.
Some things are better left unchanged.
