What Happened Google?

Google, can you please give me a way to get rid of the stupid and pointless previews? Half of the sites that appear as an image on the right side of the page when my mouse hovers over the link. I find them very distracting and also a waste of bandwidth. They are there sometimes and other times they are not.

Whatever happened to having things simple? That and the good search results are what originally got me to begin using your search engine. The results now are not good. Usually, the first page is just spam links, and now you’re adding completely pointless features with no way to disable them. How I wish you had some real competition.

I also don’t need to see image results and video results at the top of the page. I can click on either image search or video search to get those. Isn’t that the point of having them links?
