New Google image search interface

google image search dali

Google image search just got a whole lot better. The new interface is very effective. Just search for images, and select an image. It shows a large preview in the same window. And you can browse through the results with your cursor key.

(this new layout is rolling out now, you might have to wait a few days before it appears in your region)

We still have a long way to go in interface design. I think one big challenges is how to make large amounts of content digestible. Coffee table books are still much better if you want to sit down and look at a large amount of images. But I think it won’t take long before the web becomes better at artists monographs than printed books.
