Before they redesigned, when you did a search using “Google”:http://www.google.com/ and some of the results were also found in Google Directory (which is really a re-skinning of the “Open Directory”:http://dmoz.org/ project) you would see a link straight to the relevant category page alongside the search results. The redesign they did recently seems to have removed this feature. So if you want to see what categories a search of yours fits into you have to search the google directory separately. And there is no way in the preferences to change this. Can I get my old Google back please?
