Default Google Image Search removes View Image button and Search by Image feature (Feb,15,201

https://searchengineland.com/google-...feature-292183

It's disconcerting how things you take for granted one day can be gone the next.

On google images I have always found it incredibly useful that I can view an image in full size and quality without going into the website itself, for convenience and for avoiding going into undesirable websites.

As of now there are other ways to view or copy the full image.
However, this recent event is an unsettling sign of the direction major company want to take the internet.

If you right click the image you can 'open IMAGE in new tab'. It's annoying though, since i can't just use my mouse wheel click to open it up...

I heard that they were sued by some stock image company.

They'd better watch out. Google'll buy them!
