Bubbling is showing different things to different people by default. That is not what is going on here. We have 100s and in the future we hope 1000s of possible tab states. They are not all relevant to all queries and we're showing the ones we know are relevant.

We are looking for ways to expose bangs more, but the drop down, while liked by few was hardly used at all in the aggregate so unfortunately also wasn't a good way to expose the concept to new users. We're working on a much better way but it wasn't ready in time for this launch.

We're also working on a better sort by date functionality. Unfortunately for that too, the functionality had degraded to a point where we didn't think it is worth promoting until we deliver on it in a more useful fashion. It is certainly something we're actively working on.

But why not keep the drop down bangs for those that know/use? Plus there must be ways to indicate this (as the new screen now gives all sorts of advice which I don't need & is annoying)

Okay, I am willing to wait and see how things turn out after all these months.
BTW, Antelope, California now produces a Map option -- nice.
