Make Google Images Great Again


After you install this extension, you should see the [View Image] and [Search by Image] buttons in the expanded preview of Google Image search results.

Why doesn’t Google Image search have these very useful buttons any more? Because Getty Images was worried that those buttons made it too easy to commit copyright infringement, and Google desperately wanted to be able to continue to include Getty Images in its image search results.

If you notice anything weird or it doesn’t work, send an email to [email protected] and we’ll figure it out.

Note that Google’s HTML and javascript on its image search results pages is pretty funky, so this extension definitely has to resort to some methods that are not as robust as I’d like. Take a look at the code and if you have any suggestions on how to be less reliant on their div class names and DOM hierarchy, let me know.

Fork or contribute (pull requests welcome):

Thanks, and feel free to buy me a beer –
