THANK YOU GOOGLE :-)

However they should add an option in the Preferences : "yes I want to hide the images details". That way, everybody would be happy =)

That looks so much better now the details are visible again :-).

Though I'm missing the mouseover highlighting now.

I kinda liked the other way, but this way is fine.

I just used Google Images for the first time in about a week, and didn't even notice that the old interface was new again.

I bet if it was the new one that 90% of us disliked, I'd have noticed... But I didn't -- and that's a good way to start off a week!

They made a mistake, then they corrected it - pretty rare for a company that size - thanks Google.

ya, that's better. No need to mouse over images to see what size they are.

I guess the squeaky wheel gets the grease. I liked the new format a lot more than the old.

The old, the one they reverted to, is much better.

I doubt they made the change because of the pushback, but it may well have encouraged them to take a second look at whether the new format was consistent with their overall philosophy. IMO usability issues, plus the fact that in the past Google has never felt the need to dumb down its search tools, make this the correct decision.
