Ancestry.Com - Different Search Page

I just noticed last night that they have changed the search page and fields on Ancestry. They have eliminated the keyword option for the main search. I am thinking they did it to make it easier for beginners, but to me, it's hampering my searches.

It's also confusing. It gives you the option of clicking "Exact Matches Only" and then allows for you to search "Exact Matches Only" using an exact search or soundex.

I do like the fact that you can search family trees, stories and publications and photos and maps though.

Anyone find some creative ways to use this new search since we don't have keyword anymore?
