Inside Search: “Easily get back to the images you’ve found on Google”

The perfect image of your next big adventure, knitting project or style-changing haircut is bound to exist somewhere out there. But what happens once you find the image? Take a screenshot? Maybe try to save the webpage? Starting today there is an easier option: you can now star and bookmark images directly from Google’s image search in your mobile browser.

Back in 2010, users could star Google search results; one year later this handy feature was removed with little explanation. Now someone at Google apparently dusted off this ancient idea, for mobile only. Let’s see how long it survives this time.

Google Maps uses stars to keep track of saved locations as well, syncing these between mobile apps and the web site; it would be very disappointing to see stars removed from Maps.
