I HATE the new google options it gives when you type something in! It's really annoying, I liked it when my old searches were cached and would pop back up it meant I could keep my favourites for favourites and use this for the occaisional times I needed a site on a particular subject. I can't stand that if you hit return to get the information in the search bar it searches for it straight away as 90% of the time I'd hit the I feel lucky button! ARGH!!!!
Dawntigga, I think you can change it back to how you like it. Next to the google search bar, click on Preferences. Then choose the option "do not provide query suggestions in the search box" then click on Save Preferences button
