Google Inc. has plans to kill the “I'm feeling lucky” button, which has for more than 10 years now proved to be an essential part of its search engine.

The button is missing from a new user interface design Google is testing in Finland.

'I'm Feeling Lucky' was first created to reflect Google's confidence that its top search result would almost always be the one being looked for.

But since the launch of the Google Instant search last year, the button only works if the user first disables the instant search function.

There has been no official word yet confirming whether or not it will be permanently removed.

As Google continues to break new ground at a tremendous rate, perhaps the button is part of an older online mindset, reports the Daily Mail.
