Google's Image Swirl

Image Swirl is an extension to Google's existing Image search page. The new site organises the search results into similar groups and sub-groups and produces them in a neat visual manner. For example, if you search for 'Sony', the resultset will be organised into groups of similar products like Camera, Notebook, Handycam, Playstation, etc.. It's cool visually and fun to play around with the design structure. However I feel the resultset of the images are very less compared to the existing tool. At the sametime the images look repetitive. Understand it is still in development.

Also, URL link is different from Google's standard link and there is no link to it from the main page like how it's there for the existing features of Image, Web, Maps, etc.. Have a look and play around!!
