Does anybody else miss snapback?

I find it odd that Apple left it in the Google search box but removed it from the address field.

I have sent feedback to Apple many times.

Why oh why would Apple remove such a useful feature?

Doesn't seem to work properly here.

I navigate to a fresh tab, say CNN.com - Breaking News, U.S., World, Weather, Entertainment & Video News. I click on a link to another page.

The snapback button is greyed out and Cntl-F doesn't do anything.

Oh and despite what Apple says, you do have to restart Safari to get the snapback extension to appear.

control F was just the Find feature so you wouldn't have to scroll through the page to locate SnapBack. It doesn't have any other functionality in using the extension.
