RIP by Andrew Hannah

Removes Google’s Instant Preview.

Instant Preview is that annoying magnifying glass Google insists on inserting beside every search result.

When you click on it, or indeed anywhere near a result, an image pops up giving a fairly useless screenshot of the website.

RIP removes this. Simples.

8-Bit News by Nicholas FitzRoy-Dale

8-Bit News gives Google News a retro, 8-bit look. Apart from looking cool, 8-Bit News also emphasises the news on the page and removes alternate headlines, “starring”, and so on.

At least us ugly as Google News’s default appearance.

Posted 3 years ago URL Shortener by Semimagic

Google just opened their URL Shortener to the public, and in honor of the occasion, I whipped up a Safari Extension that will quickly shorten the URL of the currently open tab using Google’s service. The Safari Extension is free and (mostly) open source.
