Description from store Search Filter - improving your search results since 2012! Changelog 2.1.15 fixes filtering on Google 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.

  • (2023-10-31) dtr. B.: The point is: It does only work in google, if not logged in there. (Had to log in to tell this, but logging out now.
  • (2023-10-31) Henry Yau: Works on Google, doesn't work on Bing at all
  • (2023-09-26) Okeey Cai: Used to be best extension, but now It rotten.
  • (2023-09-05) Elienai Assis: Its currently only working if I'm not logged in with the google account... :(
  • (2023-08-27) Hakkı Göçeoğlu: It was excellent but stopped working recently, probably after an update
  • (2023-08-16) Not Sure: I don't see the button on the webpage when I search. I'm on Chrome, Windows 10 latest version, 1920x1080p, 100% zoom, using Google.com's dark theme. All extensions are disabled except for "Search Filter". You mention, "You can more easily create filters directly in search results by clicking "highlight" and "hide". I see neither of these buttons.
  • (2023-04-20) Todo Lo mejor: Genial, aunque me gustaria que se pueda ver las paginas que uno va bloqueando no se xq ocultaron esa seccion
  • (2023-03-23) Yegor: used it for a long time in Chrome, but now I tried to switch to Edge and it doesn't work at all
  • (2023-02-18) I3 O R D O: seems to not work for shopping results...
  • (2023-01-05) SMAXSOST: The extension still working I use it since day one, I use it in opera GX but I'm sure it's working in all browsers (opera, chrome, edge...) just don't forget that some extensions need the option "Allow access to search page results" checked, to find this option right click your extension and click manage extension, now look for the option in the menu, after you check the option restart your browser or just refresh your pages, now the extension will work as intended ^^
  • (2022-12-24) Lucas VB: It was good, but has stopped working recently.
  • (2022-12-22) LN Link: Doesn't work at all. Hiding or promoting sites.
  • (2022-11-29) Maciej Solecki: I love it. It works great. Very powerfull tool.
  • (2022-10-18) Aranxza Sue: Me solucionó la vida! muchas gracias 10/10
  • (2022-10-12) David: Awesome, can finally get rid of all the spam domains that just gather posts.
  • (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) George: 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
