That sounds like something I was trying to figure out in another thread. If you click on View Original Image,* you end up on a screen where the only way out is via the browser's Back button, because it really is just the image in isolation. I can't for the life of me figure out how this translates to a good user experience. That's, er, "user" = the person doing the search, not "user" = the site being searched.
Yes, the whole thing is unnecessarily clunky and definitely moves away from google's usual "clean" approach of serving results as fast and as simply as possible. A definite move to benefit themselves and not the user IMO. A strong case of do as I say and not as I do, I feel!
