What is View Image?
'View Image' is a Chrome extension that reintroduces the 'View Image' button to Google Images. The button, once a staple feature, provided a straightforward way to view and download images. With 'View Image' installed, users can once again quickly access images without being redirected to the containing webpage. Open-source code is available on GitHub for keen coders to participate in improving the extension.

Takes a couple seconds to load the button but it works. It would be nice to have an option to link the preview image directly to the image as well.
