Google News Launches Image Version

If you go to Google News and you want to see the most important news in images, select the new graphical view. If you hover over an image, you'll be able to read a snippet from the news in a nicely animated sidebar and see images from related news.

The new version is available for search results as well and it's easy to toggle between the standard view, the image view and a simplified version. Recently Google Image Search added an option to restrict the results to news sites or to images that contain faces.

  2. Cgull > it doesn't work in all languages, try that:
    http://news.google.com/news?imv=1&ned=us

    Ionut > is your screen really small? Because on your screenshot, there is half of the page for images, half for news. I get different proportions...

  3. My screen is not that small, but I had to resize the browser window to obtain a decent screenshot.

  5. I love news in pictures. Seems more lively and interesting to me though but not all news have pics and this might be the only cons...

  6. Not all the news articles have images and not all the images are relevant to the articles.

  7. Looks like an overuse of Ajax to me. Maybe I'm just not understanding how this helps me.
