Are you tired of unneeded webpage loading and extra link clicking just to access an image found using Google Image Search? Now you can jump directly to the image itself with the clickGOOGLEview extension for Google Chrome.

The Problem

When you find an image that you like using Google Image Search you always have to go through extra hassle just to get to the image itself. First you have an entire webpage loading in your browser and then you have to click through that irritating “See full size image” link. All that you need is the image, right?


Problem Fixed

Once you have installed the clickGOOGLEview extension you will absolutely love the result. Find an image that you like, click the link, and there is your new image without any of the hassle or extra link clicking.


Big or small having direct access to the image is how it should have been from the beginning.



The clickGOOGLEview extension does one thing and does it extremely well…it gets you to those images without the extra hassle or additional link clicking.

    Simple greasemonkey script will do this trick in Firefox.
    var firstbit =‘&’);
    var secondbit = firstbit[0].split(‘=’);
    window.location.href = secondbit[1];

    Yes, yes I am.

    What I’ve been finding is that extensions such as this simply don’t play well with extensions
    like autopager or fastest chrome.

    They work on the first page, but not on the subsequent autopages.

    Being able to preload pages is a GREAT convenience until that incompatibility comes to
    light. Then it’s either don’t use programs like this extension or don’t use autopagers.

    They appear to be mutually incompatible.

    I have always been very frustrated with the pane that shows up on the top (now left) of image result links and i am glad i found this.This is great, but I can’t seem to find anything that takes me directly to the webpage the image was found on, which can be very helpful when looking for wallpapers, as there are thousands of images you can not find on a search result page. any ideas?
