CustomizeGoogle

Posted by Xavier Ashe on June 16, 2005

CustomizeGoogle is a Firefox extension that enhance Google search
results by adding extra information and removing unwanted information.
All features are optional and easily configured from the options menu.

  • uses Google Suggest when you search
  • adds links to competitors (“Try your search on Yahoo…”)
  • rewrites links to point straight to the images in Google Images
  • removes image copying restrictions in Google Print
  • secures Gmail, switches to https
  • anonymize your Google userid (disabled by default)
  • removes ads (disabled by default)
  • adds a result counter in search result (disabled by default) NEW
  • filters spammy websites from search results NEW
  • This is a great tool.  I have using it for a while now.  Now
    it's hard to use a computer with this installed.  You used to have
    to have Firefox and GreaseMonkey, but now CustomizeGoogle is a FireFox add-on.
