    well, it is a solution, but not a very good one, as it inflates opera’s market share. does it work well in Opera? then why blocking it? Browser sniffing is sooo 2004

    The new search interface is awful. Why change to that on purpose?

    Pretty lame that Google doesn’t support Opera 100%!

    if you want to download images as quick as possible, the new feature is not handy at all. I use opera’s Google Images Redirect extension to get the image in one click.

      Does it work? The recent reviewers said it does not.

        Extension called Google Images Direct works for sure – I’m using Opera 11.50.
