July 2001 is the moment when Google launched its Image search engine offering public access to 250 milion images. On February 2005 it was already 1.1 bilion images available for search and this number keeps growing. As we know, find and exact image we are looking for is being quiet hard and time-consuming.

This is not too good for browsing this amount of images, mainly if you cannot show more results per page.
Finally Google is preparing new generation of image search engine called Google Image Swirl now available in Google Labs.

This is giving you an option to make your image browsing much more easier and fun. So go ahead and check it out straight on Google Image Swirl or here on screenshot:
