This extension just brings it back. That beautiful Button. It brings it back. Brings back the "View Image" button on Google Image results page, clicking on which will open the full size image in a new tab.

Also, I made it Open Source (MIT License). Check here:

Great! Just a quick suggestion (Too lazy to open an issue on Github :) ). Is there any reason not to use a more specific filter here?: "content_scripts": [ { "matches": [ "http://*/*", "https://*/*" ], So it doesn't run on every page, we want it to be executed only when browsing Google, don't we?

Along with thousands of others, I was fairly shocked at the news of Google's removal of the 'View Image' button. Despite the fair reasoning behind their decision, it's now made life with a lot of my clients quite difficult. This plugin solves that problem.

Pros:

Reinstates one of the most used features of Google Images

Cons:

None

@amrith @vinitagrawal I would even pay you if you had a working "search by image" google service to come back!
