Google allowing you to grab an image right off the Image Search Tool without going clicking on the image.
Microsoft and Yahoo do the same thing, but it's with good reason: to offer you the full version of the image without actually visiting the page removes the context of why it's there, and makes the search engines more of a content leech than a beneficial traffic director.

The good news, is that if you feel like taking some shortcuts, there's a new Firefox extension that melts away these moral productivity burdens. Called "Google Image Help," this non-Google affiliated tool adds a new "open full size Google image" item to your contextual menu. Selecting that option when right-clicking on a thumbnail preview from Google's Images search simply opens up the source image in a new browser tab.


When the system works, it works well, though one annoying bit about it is that that option will remain in your context menu no matter what you're clicking on. Some other extensions have managed to do a better job at hiding their presence until they're actually needed like that neat Picnik image editor extension we checked out a few weeks ago.

For users of Greasemonkey, there's a simple script called "view Google images full," which does the same thing without the extension install.

That's wicked.

I have been with Firefox almost all of my internet life but, recently it's been acting up ALOT.

I am thinking of changing to Wyzo which is another browser not as advanced as Firefox but its by Mozilla.

Nice. Its to bad you can't just drag, and drop onto your desktop to download the pictures.

I think that google should just reverse the system. Make the thumbnail link to the big version and have a link on the big version that links to the page the picture is found on. Not too many people go looking for certain pages on google images.

That probably couldn't work. Since some servers are slower than others, it could take a Milena for a page to load, with large images with there dimensions changed. It would probably be smarter to keep to there hosted thumbnails, since there all about speed, and to convince W3C to add a HTML5 attribute that alows browsers to view the true source.

aka{
Code:
<img truesrc="http://www.example.com/imagetowhatever.png" src="http://www.google.com/thumbnailtowhatever.gif" />
}

Thus, allowing newer browsers to right click, and save the true source to wherever (or drag and drop wherever), and keeping there display speeds fast.




They could probably also add a setting to change whether or not the link goes to the real image, or to the website page in the default (original styled) frameset.
