What is Disable Google Lens?
Disable Google Lens is an effective Chrome extension, that serves as a relief by reverting Google Lens results to traditional Google Image search results. Additionally, it introduces a 'Search Google for image' context menu item, opening the image results in a new tab, providing a more streamlined and efficient browsing experience. Details on manually removing the 'Search image with Google Lens' context menu item post-installation, are included.

This extension bypasses "Google Lens" results and takes you to the normal image results like how it used to be.

It also adds a "Search Google for image" context menu item that will open the image results in a new tab.

Post-installation instructions for manually removing the old "Search image with Google Lens" context menu item (the one that opens results in the Side Bar) can be found at https://github.com/fanfare/disablegooglelens/blob/master/CHROME.md

I have it installed on Microsoft Edge and it's working perfectly for me as of 8th June 2024 👍. I have this extension along with the "Search by Image" extension and it works just fine for me.

It still isn't working for me. Since the middle of May, it's only been giving me 2 web results per search, and the images tab is gone.
