Just annotations of little "how to's", so I know I can find how to do something I've already done when I need to do it again, in case I don't remember anymore, which is not unlikely. Hopefully they can be useful to others, but I can't guarantee that it will work, or that it won't even make things worse.

You can still have google with the top black menu bar

I truly hate websites or GUIs in general going away with nice features or changing stuff for no good reason, and/or without being in a clear opt-in/out manner.

Anyway, adding a parameter to the google query/url still brings the not-so-old UI: noj=1

You'll still need a user script to have "scholar" to be among the search options on that menu, though. Otherwise it's still on "more → even more → scholar, no longer with your original query, loser".

So you can change your browser's search engine settings and add that (with an "&") somewhere, so "your" google, when called from the browser's pre-set URL, will have the good ol' UI. It will "vanish" if you type just on the address bar.
