I am seeing a brand new (at least for me), Image Search layout at Google. When you click on an image, it appears on the left of the screen (desktop), while the right shows all the other thumbnails. This left part is sticky, and remains on screen while you scroll the page.

Also, for some reason, scrolling the page with the mouse wheel is extremely slow.

I'm still seeing the same thing I've seen for a long time.

Could be a test, could be a layout that is being rolled out by region.

It's hard to describe an interface like this, so I may be misreading... but this sounds precisely what I've been seeing for a long time now... when you click on an image on the page, it appears enlarged on the left side of in a dark selection panel, as I call it, with eight thumbnails to its right.

Clicking on any of the thumbnails will cause the thumbnail image to replace the image on the left, but not to change the thumbnails offered. There are left and right facing arrows on the sides... "<" and ">", and clicking those will change to another group of thumbnails. You can get rid of the black selection panel by clicking the "X" in the upper right of the panel.

Within the panel, buttons with captions (Visit, Save, View saved, Share) permit actions on the current enlarged image on the left.

I'm not having any trouble scrolling the whole page with my mouse wheel. YMMV.

A sticky like view ... works a treat. :)
