Google Image Results Redesign

I’m not sure when exactly this happened, but Google seems to have gone live with the redesigned Google Image search results they’ve been experimenting with for some time. Now instead of seeing the file name, dimensions, size and URL, you’ll only be getting some “context-aware” snippet below the image. If you hover over the image, the image’s the size & dimensions and its domain appear dynamically.

While the new design removes some stuff you don’t always look for in image results, and the context snippet is helpful, in my opinion Google went a little too far: they should’ve kept the domain info, as it’s too important to only appear on hover. (Besides, always showing the domain info puts more emphasis on giving credit where credit is due.)

[Thanks Maxim!]
