I am not a fan of the new view. I much prefer them to go back to simplicity. Although some may argue that the new layout is more simplistic. But as always with time we will get used to it and it will be come second nature.

The change to the menu on the right is a case of getting used to. (It didn't remove any features/options/ it is a layout change). But removing stuff like the image sizes and dimensions on first glance isn't a case of getting used to, imho, this is not simply a layout change (if it was, then it would be ok I guess). But it is a case of removing features (which I use all the time in each and every image search I perform - and almost the sole reason why I never use Bing for image searches*).

* yes I know, it will be shown when you hoover over the image, but that is _realy_ contra-productive as it takes way to long if you need to wait each time on the popup appearing to select images like that.

Now been put on the new version.  Doesn't look too bad, but having to hover on images is annoying.

There seems to be a "show sizes" option that displays it over the bottom-right corner...

I hadn't noticed that before!

It's very nice, but it doesn't remember the setting which is a little annoying

I'm sure someone will release a script for it eventually

If they do, that would actually be big enough to prompt me to install GM for the first time :P

RE: WTF Google?
I might do the same, although it is yet another thing which needs to get loaded, etc, so dunno. There are other 'solutions' too, but the point is that Google should get their act together and fix such stuff before trying to go 'Web2.0'. The strength of Google is that it is (was?) simplistic and fast. But they are slowly going in the other direction (pages full of JS code, useless flashy fade animations, etc)...

Nothing that was not possible with FireFox + autopager :p

It's great, it fits more images without any clutter that I don't care about, it still allows a certain amount of features by clicks and best of all, when one scrolls down to the bottom if loads the next page of images (endless scrolling).
