What do you think of Google's new image search?
I think it's brilliant. Although they should have done it years ago, and the updates to their logo (the new one is fantastic; so clean and fresh yet simple as always) could have been done a long time ago, you can't deny its excellence, can you?
Also, what's the point of having 'Google Search' and 'I'm Feeling Lucky' when it does it automatically?
Yeah, I really like the image search too! I like having such an expansive selection of results in easy-to-see thumbnails. Also, I think Google really got rid of a lot of the clutter involved in the original image search UI. Not to mention, they've improved the results for the pictures you get to deliver even more relevant image results!
As for Google Instant and "I'm Feeling Lucky..." I see why they're both still around. If you go into it with an idea of what you're searching for already in mind, then the "Instant" won't really "change" your search or make it automatic in any way. Google Instant works much the same as Google Suggest did, and really, who paid attention to that? The only difference is now the "Suggestions" are visual rather than just a drop-down text menu.
And "I'm Feeling Lucky" is still fun, because it cuts through all the "suggestions" entirely and drops you off on the page Google assumes you are looking for... which has never been super useful I've found, but has always been super fun!
But yes, I totally agree with you about the image search. So much better!
It is cool now and easy to navigate and the logo part is also fantastic.
yes, it is cool, and easy access the images, otherwise lot of links to go through to dive in our images, it is lot easy now...

I keep up with Google news fairly regularly to see what's coming down the pipe. I still feel vague self-righteousness over raising the pre-Panda alarm, only to be scoffed at for suggesting that Google might start ranking sites by quality of content across a domain, not just on a page-by-page basis....

Google just dumped Instant Search. How do I choose titles for my pages now? All suggestions welcome.

I have a Hub that used to get quite a lot of traffic from Google image searches but ever since Google changed their image search design at the end of January 2013, it has almost completely disappeared. Now when you do a Google image search you get a full-size "preview" without ever...
