When Google announced their new streaming search, where as you type the results begin to appear they killed of one of their oldest friends – I’m feeling lucky button.

Okay you might still see it when you visit the home page, and it might be there in a hidden way when search suggestions appears, but what use is a button when it’s never gets clicked?
