Image search

Unread post by groundhog2 » 2022-11-18, 15:54

I have been using this addon with great success and ease to search Google Images by just right-clicking an image:

https://addons.palemoon.org/addon/image-search-options/

However, it appears Google updated the image search to their Google Lens version so it no longer works. Is there something I can do to edit in the options or is there another addon which works?

Thanks!

Gigablast seems to be the best search engine for images these days, assuming you do not want to be tracked all over the place.

Just replace in settings:

Code: Select all

http://www.google.com/searchbyimage  to 
https://lens.google.com/uploadbyurl  and
image_url=::$URL::  to

Off-topic:
Interesting... that search engine seems to be, based on the portfolio, owned by the group who now runs Freenode
