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.

What has inspired us?

Extore is a team of professionals who are passionate about creating extensions for web browsers. This devotion also gives us opportunity to appreciate work of other people. We get inspired by useful, open source extensions made by developers all over the world. Our strong belief is that one should share helpful add-ons with others. That’s why we’d like to present you our ever-growing list of favourite extensions that have inspired us. Moreover, as you probably have already learned, sometimes struggling for the best brings an end to the good. Talking about add-ons it often turns out that an upgrade is worse then previous version. Also it can become really tricky to get back to the beloved version of your favourite extension. That’s why we’re going to make not only the latest, but all versions of our favourite (and we hope yours too) add-ons available for download. No more compromises, just stick to the version you really like!
