Description from store Search Filter - improving your search results since 2012! Changelog 2.1.14 fixes filtering on DDG 2.1.13 renamed extension to Search Filter 2.1.12 fixes dark mode on Google 2.1.11 fixes bug where extension would freeze if highlight/hide clicked before setup 2.1.9 fixes filtering on Google 2.1.8 fixes filtering on Google image search 2.1.7 fixes filtering on Google 2.1.6 added support for StartPage 2.1.5 fixes filtering on Google News 2.1.0 easily create filters directly from search results 2.0.0 reduced permissions, improved syncing, external filters, support for all searches (images, videos, news included), and initial support for DuckDuckGo and Bing. 1.0.11 bugfix 1.0.10 improved performance 1.0.9 far more efficient and now compatible with Firefox 1.0.6 syncing is working again (SSL'd connection to sync server) 1.0.5 updated to support new version of Google Search 1.0.4 added support for https://encrypted.google.com/ 1.0.3 significant performance improvements 1.0.2 added support for Google Instant About Search Filter This extension is mainly targeted at developers who run API or problem focused searches over and over again. There are usually a handful of sites whose results we prefer, and a handful of sites whose results are poor or worthless. Search Filter allows you to specify (in developer-friendly fashion) sites whose results you would like see highlighted and sites whose results you never want to see. In case you use multiple installations of Chrome, this extension allows you to sync your configuration across all installations. Here is a sample configuration: # Make these domains stand out in results +en.wikipedia.org +stackoverflow.com +github.com +api.rubyonrails.org # SPAM - never show these results experts-exchange.com # Pull filters from external source @https://clobapi.herokuapp.com/default-filters.txt To avoid littering the GUI with buttons, the Search Filter button only appears when running searches on Google.

  • (2022-09-24) Björn Bakker: Does not work in Opera.
  • (2022-09-17) Aarvys: It doesn't seem to work on DuckDuckGo. It seems like it's trying to work ("Search Filter is hiding 62 results"), but the results that I wanted to be filtered out weren't filtered out. The "highlight" and "hide" buttons also do not show up on DuckDuckGo, so I had to manually enter them in and wasn't sure if I was doing it right. I switched to Google and it worked fine. The concept is cool and I love that you can differentiate between websites you want highlighted and websites that you don't want to see at all, but I wish it worked with DuckDuckGo. I'm going to keep looking for an extension that works with DuckDuckGo, but I'll keep this one in mind in case it ever fully supports DuckDuckGo!
  • (2022-08-26) Дмитрий Евсютин: По русски ни слова
  • (2022-07-20) Samuel Therrien: Works on Google, but not on DuckDuckGo
  • (2022-06-13) Joseph Hale: Neat concept! Works very well with Google, but currently failing with Bing (it looks like Bing wraps all its search results with a query back to Bing that later redirects to the site). I'd also appreciate an option to "de-emphasize" search results without removing them (perhaps a "-" sign prefix for each entry?) I look forward to continuing to use this!
  • (2022-01-14) Pat MySecret: I adore this extension! (when it works.. it cuts out on me sometimes. I am now allowing error collection)(1/10 it asked me for a sync name & started working again 1/13 then it stopped again.. I need to shut off all my other extensions some time to see if they interfere) News sites behave differently in the amount of ads and paywalls they throw at people. This extension definitely helps save you from going back to sites that just aren't what you are looking for.
  • (2022-01-06) Kevin Saliou: Nice and simple, exactly what I was looking for
  • (2021-11-10) SoVa32: Половину не фильтрует!
  • (2021-10-22) Rene Koch: Great plugin ... 1 missing star as it doesn't support dark mode in google search
  • (2021-10-09) Aleksey K.: Работает. Выдаче в гугл поиске фильтрует. С начальной настройкой какая то хрень непонятная и синхронизация.
  • (2021-09-22) roughnecks: Hi, can you update the app to reflect the new dark theme in google search? Thanks, keep up the good work!
  • (2021-09-01) Konstantin Tulupov: Many thanks!!! I google hundreds of times every day and it saves my time and efforts!!! Can you please add a feature: highlight groups by colors. For example, sometimes you don't want to hide some domains completely, but highlight it with yellow
  • (2021-07-18) Magnus W: Thank you!! Finally I can get rid of all paywalled newspapers from my search results (which are often 50% of all search results).
  • (2021-07-15) guai: не пашет
  • (2021-07-09) Luís Möllmann: Excellent extension, makes it much faster to scan search results. The sync feature is pretty awesome too. Well done!
  • (2021-07-01) Rodrigo Xavier Salomone: Excelente herramienta de productividad !!! Super recomendada!!
  • (2021-06-10) Juan Carlos García: Estuve utilizando algunas otras extensiones buscando los resultados que esta extensión me brinda, con configuraciones y filtros sencillos de aplicar para el usuario, pero con resultados eficaces y opciones de lo más útiles.
  • (2021-06-04) ChocAus: It removed some of the hyperlinks, but the Google snippets still showed the blocked website results. Runescape.fandom.com was still displaying in the google search snippets even though it was blocked.
  • (2021-04-27) Deniz Kaymakci: doesn't work?
  • (2021-04-14) A Coder: sorry mate , dont work. doesnt do a thing . no icons no menus no nothing. i used to have something to do this years ago bt google killed it. i think they done the same to you.
  • (2021-03-15) Tomy Dayos: The extension is good, but it don't seen to work on Yippy. I don't know if there is plans for it to support Yippy in the future or not. But if you are a Yippy user like me, well, at least you can filter things in other search engines when you don't find then on Yippy.
  • (2021-03-13) David Baker: It seems to not allow hiding of sites that be paying for placement. I often search to compare two products. There are many bots sites that suck in my search words and return useless garbage just to get me to click and make them ad money. But these exact domains DO NOT show your 'hide' option. I can only assume they are paying to appear. I need an extension that allows me to blacklist a domain from results.
  • (2021-03-04) obulks: 用来屏蔽百度知道和csdn的搜索结果👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍
  • (2021-02-23) Tomy Dayos: Good!
  • (2021-02-18) Сергей Пименов: Не работает
  • (2021-02-01) B Jack: good job i so like thank you
  • (2021-01-26) Alejandro López: No funciona
  • (2021-01-24) Afonso Sousa Soares: Being able to filter out domains "sponsored" by google is amazing.
  • (2021-01-19) Dave S: Doesn't work. Doesn't block the search result and then fails to offer option to do so unless you close down chrome and restart it.
  • (2021-01-18) Georgi: Finally I found what I was looking for. Update: Unfortunately it doesn't work anymore. There are no highlight and hide buttons anymore. Doesn't highlight anything and doesn't filter anything. So sad.
  • (2021-01-18) Ahmet A.: not working
  • (2021-01-12) Michael García: 4 Stars because it worked flawlessly the last time i used it, but now i am on a new installation and i think it can't sync with my old installation's settings and endlessly puts "failed to sync, retrying in 15 sec", can't remember my old password but since it only behaves like this with this exact password i'm assuming it's the right one.
  • (2020-11-28) Batuhan Batuhan: Please add a keyword option too not only domain names but keywords too.
  • (2020-11-20) Leon Lin: so good ~.~" Thank You.
  • (2020-10-12) Ben Witschey: worked once, then disappeared from search results after doing another search
  • (2020-10-01) Noel Sanderson: Non working trash
  • (2020-09-04) matthew johns: First of all, just wanted to say that I LOVE this extension, I used it for ages back when I actually used Google... Then I started using DuckDuckGo and unfortunately you did not provide support for it at that time so I regretfully stopped using it.. Jump forward to now, I am using Startpage nowadays because it uses Google's superior search results without Google's invasive tracking. For some time I have been putting up with occasional bad results until just now when one pushed me enough to search for the glory that was/is this extension but for Startpage... Does not exist as far as I can tell though sadly :.(.... Would you be willing to add Startpage support? It is virtually the exact same as Google... Looking forward to good news :), otherwise keep up the excellent work.
  • (2020-08-29) G. Sa: Currently does not work.
  • (2020-08-06) Cameron Swen: Doesn't work with Google News feed
  • (2020-07-28) Tadas Karpavičius: Exactly what I was looking for!
  • (2020-07-16) Сергей Смушков: В google поиске не работает
  • (2020-06-27) Juanne Coetzee: I've been using this tool for YEARS
  • (2020-03-23) Robert Irelan: Can't find a link to file a bug, but this extension doesn't appear to work on the current version of the Google Search results page.
  • (2020-02-21) Leo B: Works, but is lacking two features: Regular Expressions, and filtering out the domains from Ads too. Example: Search for "sting tour 2020". I don't want to see anything from viagogo, not in the Ads, and not from any of their .ie, .co.uk, .be and whatnot domain...
  • (2020-02-08) Cody Barnson: Its great. Super simple, exactly what I was looking for.
  • (2020-01-23) Yuto Tokunaga: Vital extension
  • (2019-12-31) 兆軒蕭: This extension is very helpful. For Taiwanese, many of us search in Traditional Chinese and don't like any web content from China (which comes in Simplified Chinese). However, Google NEVER listen to our needs and NEVER help us filter out those content. You just help us in a pretty simple and efficient way. Nice work!
  • (2019-12-22) ismail belli: exactly what i wanted thank you
  • (2019-09-22) Stefano Maroni: Al momento - settembre 2019 - l'estensione funziona perfettamente. Posso evitare che nelle mie ricerche compaiano i soliti siti pieni di fuffa generica e quelli che vorrebbero che disattivassi adblock (legittimo per loro impedirmi di procedere, legittimo per me evitare che mi riempiano le pagine di ricerca).
  • (2019-08-16) Warmuser: Finally! These extension works perfectly!!! It's Amazing for occulting some annoying websites on the Google search pages.
