I love the new Google image search.. honestly if your computer is loading the page too slow you need a better internet connection or a better browser..
Mine pops up in the same amount of time. If there is any difference in load times it is inconsequential on Firefox, chrome, and safari.. IE can barely load msn.com, Bing.com, or Google.com without farting around for a few minutes.
With cooliris, and pagerize greasemonkey scripts and add-ons for most browsers, I think Google took the right step.
you must hover your mouse cursor over the image for a few seconds before the information appears
Im not sure wether im right there... but when i use the google image search there are no information appearing while hovering the images... all the info i need (size, date, link, e.g.) is right below the img...
I´m wondering to whcih google version(date) you all are referring to, saying "new" features... i cannot find anything new, that isn´t there since months... O_o
It would be good if you could disable any of the new features you wanted; I've come to accept (but not like) the new image search (it's not the search screen that annoys me - that's an improvement - it's when you click on a result) but the fade in still pisses me off.
