I frequently use the Google image search. Here in Central Europe they recently deployed a new UI for image search with some fancy pop up windows. Can someone tell me how to switch back to the old style?

  • i thought it was worldwide, not only central europe?

Disable new Google Images search style

add the string &sout=1 at the end of the search URL, eg. http://google.com/images?q=sunset&sout=1


scroll to the end of the search results page and click the link called “Switch to Basic Version”

Hope this helps.

  • can i save the setting as "use basic as default"?
