Description from store Adds back the discussions button to Google search results, which enables you to search forums and message boards.

  • (2017-10-30) Laurence Gough: Thanks. No idea why Google removed the Discussion feature... I can't think of one good reason to!
  • (2017-04-09) Bobby Thom: One of the best extensions. Google used to have this feature built into their Google search engine and it was great but one day they decided to start wiping out popular features and Discussion searching got the boot.. way to go google
  • (2017-03-11) Carlos Notar: Incredible useful !
  • (2017-01-27) Nick C: Thanks so MUCH!!! I used this daily until it broke. Now that its working again its amazing.
  • (2017-01-06) ВЕЛИКАЯ РОТЕНБЕРГИЯ: Снова вернул себе поиск по обсуждениям! Всё работает. 15.04.2015. Всё, отработалось - не показывает поиск по обсуждениям :( Посоветуйте альтернативу, плиз. 17.04.2015.-снова начал отлично работать. Теперь снова имею фильтр для поиска "только по обсуждениям". 02.12.2016. Ну ё моё - опять не работает. Даже удаление и новая установка расширения не помогает. Люди! Есть альтернатива? Очень нужен фильтр поиска именно по обсуждениям! :-) 06.01.2017 И снова расширение работает, теперь у меня даже отдельной "кнопкой" "дискуссии" появились. Спасибо разработчикам!

  • (2016-12-29) Benjamin Teglbjaerg: Plz fix it. I really miss it.
  • (2016-12-20) Jeremy Bretel: This used to be an amazing extension - but since google took steps to kill this as well - there is no point in using google to search for meaning ful threads on forums -they only want to generate money and useful information doesn't do that - only online shops and paid for service - the original Google prerogative of providing the best search engine algorithms for ALL data searching is now gone forever - they are ONLY interested in generating money :-( But that leaves a hole in the market - c'mon you crazy coders - provide a mass exodus from Google by alolowing searching for meaningful content rather than just what google spoon-feeds us :-)
  • (2016-12-14) Barnaby Malins: It's an ongoing battle against the great evil that is google, this extension was hugely useful but unfortunately needs updating as google have bricked it again with their last update

  • (2016-12-08) James L: Last google update broke the extension.
  • (2016-12-05) Pete L: This was great until the latest update, cannot see the Discussion option anymore when clicking more.
  • (2016-12-04) M S.: Worked well for a while, now stopped working
  • (2016-12-02) Donna Maukonen: Has been great in the past. Hope they can fix it now that Google has updated their layout.
  • (2016-11-30) Christopher Dobson: Broken since google's layout update

    so it will appear only after clicking "More"? because it is very annoying to see it loading every time. thanks
  • (2016-12-31, v:1.3.5.2) Daniel Dany: Not working as of Dec 30-2016
    Google is now pointless without the discussions and communities in forum.
  • (2016-12-18, v:1.3.5.2) Nick C: Not Working
    Hi, no longer working - anyway you can look at it? This is SUCH a valuable extension to me which searching for computer fixes.
  • (2016-12-15, v:1.3.5.2) Chmedly Chmedenstein: You obviously know...
    It's no longer working. Hopefully it can be sorted out. Although it seems obvious that Google wants to send people to pages where they will BUY things rather forums where they aren't as likely to BUY stuff. Advertisers might be fighting for these kinds of measures.
  • (2016-12-15, v:1.3.5.2) Alex Haws: No longer works
    Please fix the addon!
