I like the new, flatter Instagram, but...

I hardly ever look at Instagram in a browser. Why should I? But last week's redesign made it more appealing to look at. Simpler is almost always better. It's clean, flat and great for browsing individual profiles. (If you know the url).

But it's still completely useless if you want to search for a user or a hashtag. I understand Instagram doesn't want users to switch from the app to a browser (would they anyway?), but the limited functionality is a mystery to me.

Anyone care to explain that one?

(Oh, I'm michald on Instagram, since you're asking).
