Faster Google thumbnails with Google Web Accelerator

I've noticed that thumbnails seem to appear more quickly when using Google Web Accelerator.

For the technically interested, this effect has to do with the way proxies and caches work: Web Accelerator caches LostGoggles code, and in addition, it also pre-fetches the Google results, making the total experience much smoother; LostGoggles thumbnails (or placeholders, at least) appear almost instantly.
