BTW apparently Google have done this to make their site more "Bing-like". Given that Bing isn't remotely as good as Google, the logic of that one completely escapes me. And it goes entirely against Google's long-term philosophy of producing rapid results in a minimalistic manner. What were they thinking?

I have noticed this too and I am on cable at work. I turned off google instant search but that did not seem to help speed it back up.

Having done a bit of poking around, it turns out that the opinion on the new image search is divided - people either say it stinks, or don't actually use the word 'stinks' but prefer 'sucks'.

There are some workarounds at the following link. The Greasemonkey alternative at the start works for me, thank goodness. Google could change the interface again anytime, though, which would break the scripts. But for now, it's all good.

I particularly like another and more elegant solution, though: if you go to your Google Search Preferences page and select either "Elmer Fudd" or "Pirate" as the language you want to see tips in, that also forces the basic images page. Ahaaar, mateys.

something happens when they start hiring all the wrong people. to make really bad decisions, etc. and when they keep on being so gullible about buying all the latest stupid new software tweaks and system updates that are just not as good features as the old. They are numbskulls, that's what's wrong. and their overbloated stock will no doubt crash.
