Don't know what to tell you. Even your link works for me. I'm in the States. Perhaps this has something to do with your location? – Al E. Apr 5 '13 at 16:36
try in incognito mode. It will reset your settings for that session. – CodeMonkey Apr 5 '13 at 17:53
It works when I am logged out. If I log in, it breaks. – chx Apr 6 '13 at 7:15

The answer is: the new results page requires JavaScript. If you accidentally disable it (I have Quick Javascript switcher) then you get the older one -- no weather reports, no currency converter, nothing.
