View Image and Search by Image is back!

Image from store RESTORE for Google Images
Description from store Do you miss the "View image" and "Search by image" buttons from Google Images? This little extension brings them back. Yeah, screw Getty and their shitty policy. If you like the extension, be sure to spread the word and if you'd like to help me and buy me a drink, here's my Paypal: https://www.paypal.me/kasetavhs Some keywords for SEO purposes: restoring google image search, view image, search by image. PS. This is probably not the most efficient way to make this kind of extension, but I took an easy route. There are no any kind of trackers, I don't collect any data, you can check the source by yourself. Extension is around 60 lines long and I could probably do it smaller, but I like when my code is readable. Enjoy!

  • (2021-05-16) Stanton McCandlish: No longer works (for either feature). This is probably fixable by the developer; Google just changed whatever it was this was working around, so the workaround has broken since 2018.
  • (2019-10-06) Юлия Шарова: не работает
  • (2019-01-09) Angelos Stamatakis: Does not work.
  • (2018-05-06) BIOS-Pherecydes: Didn't work.
  • (2018-02-17) Doug Sapp: I would have preferred that Google blocked all Getty images instead of removing the "View Image" button. No one wants to see those anyway.
  • (2018-02-17) Zenek Kowalski: It cured the cancer I got from the latest google update.
  • (2018-02-17) fishki: Sweet, thanks for this. I'm tired of google taking our stuff away.

  • (2018-02-26, v:1.1) Xane Myers: Full-screen image result pages aren't modified.
    I sometimes open an image in a new tab using CTRL-click when I'm still looking for other pictures. I've noticed this opens a full-screen page with an option to visit the website, but no "view image" or anything this extension adds to the normal version. By this, I mean pages like this: https://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=https%3A%2F%2Fvignette.wikia.nocookie.net%2Fnonnontv%2Fimages%2Fa%2Fae%2FKomari.jpg%2Frevision%2Flatest%3Fcb%3D20150818211745&imgrefurl=http%3A%2F%2Fnonnontv.wikia.com%2Fwiki%2FFile%3AKomari.jpg&docid=ClhwEkyvp_KQFM&tbnid=dZM7VCcvtCTczM%3A&vet=10ahUKEwjD6sSHwcTZAhXwdN8KHVWJDAAQMwhBKAowCg..i&w=1280&h=720&bih=772&biw=1536&q=non%20non%20biyori%20Komari%20milk%20episode%205&ved=0ahUKEwjD6sSHwcTZAhXwdN8KHVWJDAAQMwhBKAowCg&iact=mrc&uact=8
  • (2018-02-20, v:1.1) Media Tech: Can you restore the photo index of images
    Can you restore the photo index of images of all the various sizes and sites posted. This would appear when you clicked on the image dimension under the title.
