#1 Product of the DayFebruary 18, 2018

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:

    Reinstates one of the most used features of Google Images



    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.

    Ollie McQuitty has used this product for one month.

    One click less?


    Nothing is really missing

    I don't get why I need it?

    I can still right click on an image and select View image in a new tab or Copy image url which is what I most often need anyway. Search by image isn't gone anythere either.

    Raitis has never used this product.

That was quick @vinit_agrawal1! Is this extension open-source?

Thanks @amrith :) yes I just made it. Check the code 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?

@inthe0n would you mind sending a PR on Github. Thanks :)
@vinitagrawal Done. Check your github :)
Does exactly what it says it does. Thanks! 10/10

I heard they even removed the 'Search by Image' button? Please add that too @vinit_agrawal1 :D

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

I was wondering where this very handy little button disappeared to! A handy extension thanks! 👍
