A few days ago Google Image Search reverted back to the old style, I much prefer the new style. It does not matter if I'm logged in or not.

How do I tell Google I want the new style image search?

This is the style I don't want. screenshot

It seems it's a combined google/firefox issue. If I start FF in safe-mode I get the desired flowing view.

Found the solution. Somehow the default search in my google tool bar had reverted back to www.google.se instead of www.google.com as I usually have.

Oddly enough if I enter this url http://www.google.com/images?q=halloween I get the layout I want but if I change .com to .se like this http://www.google.se/images?q=halloween I get the old style with only one page at a time.


Scroll to the end of the search results page and click the link called “Switch to standard version”.

  • Strange. I can see it. The only difference between the basic and the standard version: There is &sout=1 at the end of the address path of basic version. Look for this code in your address bar and remove it to view the standard version. – Mehper C. Palavuzlar Nov 1 '10 at 14:19
  • No such value-pair in the url. It seems it's a combined google/firefox issue. If I start FF in safe-mode I get the desired view. – Nifle Nov 1 '10 at 14:41

Scroll all the way to the bottom of the image search. Click Switch to basic version

  • As you can see on my screenshot I didn't/don't have that link and I want the new search not the basic version. – Nifle Nov 1 '10 at 15:19

  • My guess is that someone seen that your answer is a duplicate and got furious about it. – Saxtus Nov 1 '10 at 17:23
