Google Old Results

Cleans up google results by using the old classic style with green links

What is Google Old Results?
'Google Old Results' is a unique Chrome extension developed with the intention of restoring the classic Google results page design. This extension helps users revert back to the old aesthetic before January 2020, when Google had a cleaner and simpler design. The extension hides the favicon and the dropdown box linked to the cached page. It reinstates the simple green links and relocates the URLs back beneath the title, just the way it was before the new updates.

Summary

The purpose of this extension is to show Google results in the way they used to before around January 2020, when the results page added a cached page dropdown and a favicon to the results page and moved the URL to above the title.

You can see the before and after in the screenshots.

It does two things: -Hides the favicon and the dropdown to get you to the cached page. -Adjust styles to replace new user interface with one that is similar to the classic google results before Jan 2020.

Wish that it worked. Just starting TODAY Googe search only shows "Videos Images Reddit News shopping Maps Books Flights Finance" What's missing is "All". Maybe this extension was worth 5 stars but now it's unable to deal with Google. Not your fault. Every Chromium browser has this problem now, including the modern Firefox. My Firefox 52.9 version gets around it somehow though and I wish I knew why. I wish you luck, Patricia!
