Is it me or has the design slightly changed for the results pages? I can never remember the change in colour when you hover over an image. Nonetheless, it looks a lot better.

Anyone else know if this is new?

It happened yesterday, I hate it because it is harder to see sizes and sources quickly.

Yes, it's terrible.

Lame, also it doesn't seem to work correctly in safari (gets stuck after first hover), then have to click to get a second one to appear.

I want cookies :lol:

The size thing really bums me out, it was nice when looking for an image to scan over and find the right sized one... Grr.. I wonder if there's a seting to switch it to "CLASSIC".

It's not old enough to have a classic yet :D

That's similar to what MSN/Live's image search does (which is what I use). I guess it's dependent on the user, a quick mouseover hasn't seemed to bother me.

It looks better, but it takes more time finding the pictures you want.

I like the old one better :(

I've seen it like that before, must have been a test when I saw it. Its quite annoying really, hopefully it will be changed back or at least be able to turn it off.

It is absolutely terrible and I hope they change it back.

Why do that - it adds nothing and is just anoying

It looks exactly the same except for the hover effect. Explain what exactly is making it "terrible" and "annoying" and "takes more time to find the pictures" please...

Previously with all the information displayed on page load you could quickly scan the page in a few seconds to see if one of the pictures are what you're looking for. URL source and size do very much matter.

Now you have to individually mouse over each one to check, which of course takes longer.

I now see what everyone means. I was looking for images earlier today and there were loads from this site that didn't work. Like you say, it makes the process a lot longer when you have to hover to get the information.

I really don't like it, sometimes on the bottom row of images the hover stays and makes it hard for you to change page.
