What happened to the search pages from selector

I’ve just noticed over the weekend that the search pages from Australia selector has gone from the Google Australia website. Does this mean that searchers are local by default or do we have to be more specific with the search phrase. I’m not conviced the results are the same as local.

Does anyone have any news on this?

Silly me, I see it’s now in the left sidebar. I don’t think it’s in as good a position now. Any comments?
