Google Drops Search Web Option In Gmail

Seems Google has silently dropped the search the web option in Gmail and I am wondering if that could be the reason it has been so buggy today.

Everyone I have spoken to about their Gmail connection today has told me it has been on and off all day. Then I see the Web Search button is gone.

Guys I know you are trying to cut back but why even bother. I use it a little but was that link causing that much in hosting?

Or do you just plan to spam me with what you think I might like. Got to love those spam recipes I see occasionally at the top.
