It was fine the way it was. Now it's harder to use, plus all that white space makes the result line look out of balance.
Also, where did the "leave feedback" button go?
It looks like the position depends on you browser window width. I see the icons on the right when my browser window it the size of the top view or wider. The result list collapses to just two columns if I make it any smaller:
It does look like this happens little sooner than necessary. Or maybe it worked better to collapse directly to two columns than to have an intermediate three column screen configuration.
