Google may be testing displaying images thumbnails on the left side of the search result snippets. At first, when Kunjan Shah sent this to me on Twitter, I thought it was a Google bug. But then others like Brent D. Payne showed it to me on YouTube as well and I am thinking now Google might be testing this.

I was told there are no browser extensions at play here but I obviously cannot confirm that without gaining access to their machines. So either this is a Google test, a Google bug, or some weird browser extension causing a mess here. It just doesn't look good to me.

Last week we spotted Google testing the navigation tools on the left side of the search results as well.
