Stop Webpages Preview Images In Search Results

by Rohit Khurana on November 19, 2010


Recently Google has launched a new feature in its search engine called Instant Previews which when installed will show you a visual preview of your search results and help you find your appropriate search quickly. This extension adds a small magnifying glass image next to each page title in the Google search results and will display a visual snapshot of that website by which you can have an idea about the site content and can make out if it is the appropriate answer to your search.

But many of the users are not liking this new feature because it makes the searching slow. So, they want to remove this feature from their Google search.

Today, we are giving you one more solution in the form of a new extension called Disable Google Instant Preview which will hide Google’s search results thumbnails.

Disable Google Instant Preview is a smart extension and specially designed to see the disliking and discomfort to users because of the new feature. When you will install this extension, it will ask you the access to your data on all the websites. You just have to click ‘Install’ and it will be installed in just a few seconds.



It will only create problem when run in incognito window because Google chrome will not be able to prevent this extension to save the browsing history in incognito window. So, take care of it.

The installed extension will simply hides the magnifying glasses displayed next to the results and no longer shows the thumbnails when you click on the snippets. The best part about this extension is that it does not totally disable the Instant Previews, it will only hide it for the people who do not like it. For the users who like it and want to have an advantage from it can trigger Google’s previews using keyboard shortcuts (right arrow to show the preview, left arrow to hide the preview, up/down arrows to navigate).


In short, it is a smart extension which is really helpful and easy for the users who are not happy with the feature of Instant Previews.
