Picasa Web Albums have just gained a new feature – the ability to place a list of linked albums on your public gallery page.

These are just favorites that you additionally flag so as to appear in the linked list. It still does not equate to adding the vital search feature, but does take one small step along the line of making Picasa Web Albums more discoverable.

Michael Herf (Picasa Engineering manager) has set up linked galleries with many of the Picasa team.

Lots of insider photos there of Google company events.

It's makes albums more discoverable. But is it really a good feature to have? What other benefit does it have?

I think it's a good feature, it allows you to find more albums as you said and I think thats enough to be allowed to stay in the web albums. I find it fun to see how many clicks I can do without visiting the same page twice :-)
