Preview and download images from google search results fast without need to open any extra windows.

Google images is a great tool to find the images you are looking for. But it does have annoying multiple steps after which you get to the full size version of the image. GoMbox is a Google Chrome extension that makes reaching the full size image a breeze. Once this extension is installed, just click on a thumbnail in image search results and directly the image’s full size version is displayed in a lightbox on the page. This saves you from the trouble of opening multiple tabs to open the result website and then clicking “view fullsize image” to actually view the image. This extension instead directly showing you the full image without leaving the google images site. Save or close the image to return to your rest of search results.

Grab the extension @ Chrome extensions

    when ever I use google images and then I click on an image.  The page with the image and “view full size image” pops up but only for like a half a second before google automatically sends me to the original website.  I want to just look at the full size image but now I have to search the whole freaking website for the image because I only get to look at the page showing “view full size image” for a split second.  This is really really annoying. Google you guys seriously messed up!!!!!
