IE 10 Metro, Page tools and the Verge.

When I first got my surface RT i was playing around with IE 10 Metro and i noticed when i went to the verge page that if you clicked the page tools " the spanner" which gives you the option for find on page and open in desktop was replaced with a navigation tools for the verge website. It would allow you to hotlink to the forums and so forth. I just recently tried to use it and it is no longer available at least for me. I never used it often so im not sure when it stop being available. Has anyone else noticed or can anyone think of a reason why the verge would want to remove this feature ?
