Listen in, listen Ian!
I'm sure there used to be somewhere in Google calendar where you can search public calendars for useful ones. For example, I have one with called Manchester United FC fixtures that I found by searching. I can't find where to search now - when I go to add a public calendar I get tabs for Browse Calendars, Friends' Calendars, Add by URL and Import calendar. There's nowhere to search - where's it gone?

It says here that the answer you seek is here.

But it's not.

Here's what it was. It looks like you're right. They're removed the ability to search public calendars.

On my account, if you go to "Show Search Options" next to the "Search My Calendars" button, the Search dropdown then shows "All Calendars" and you can still search public calendars at the moment.

I think the real reason for discontinuing it is the number of people accidentally sharing their private calendars with the whole world.

Damn, that just searches within all my calendars when I do it.

Hooray, punish me to protect the idiots! That's good, well done google!
