For the past several years I have used NetSurf for finding images on
the web via Google Images search.
Google puts up a page of images for the search term. Then a click on
an image used to bring up a web page with an option to see the impage
full size. This no longer seems to work with NetSurf.
Clicking on an image now leads to the web-page containing the image. As
you say, the option of displaying the full-size image, without visiting
the host web-page, is no longer available.
The way that Google presents the image page has changed. It is still
usable with Chrome on Linux.
... and with Firefox on Windows.
Can anyone confirm this change and better still suggest how I can
continue to use NetSurf for image searching?
Netsurf _can_ still be used for image-search, it's just a little more
tedious in having to retrieve the image from its host web-page.
