    An incredibly stupid move on their part. Makes it so much harder to view full size images.
    *Right Click*
    "Open image in new tab" or "Copy Image Address"

    Not sure if you're being sarcastic or what, because it's literally just the press of an extra button...


    This change impacts literally nothing, and anyone with basic computer knowledge and reading skills can still, very easily, view and copy said images.

    Looks like Google are doing the bare minimum to avoid legal action. I refuse to believe that they're unaware of basic work arounds any teenager with the slighest knowledge of computers will know about.

    If you're working in a high security industry, you probably shouldn't be downloading images and gifs from random sources anyway...
