Overview

This minimalistic extension disables "Scroll to Text Fragment" feature in Google search results

Google search results sometimes highlight text snippets on pages opened from search results. The feature can sometimes be annoying, however currently there's no way to disable it from browser preferences. This extension has been created to override it and disable the highlights. Disable Google Search Text Highlights is open source software: https://github.com/everyonesdesign/disable-google-search-text-highlights ☕ If you like the extension you can buy a coffee for the author here: https://buymeacoff.ee/everyonesdesign ============ Changelog 2.1.1 - add deprecated domains back to the list (to avoid prompting users about the changed list and also in case Google brings them back in the future) 2.1.0 (unreleased) - update Google domains list 2.0.0 - use runPatiently function to run as early as possible - replace the links instead of updating urls - run the script earlier (to make sure the links are replaced by the time the page is loaded) 1.1.0 - Only change href if text fragment is present - Drop trailing "#" caused by text fragment 1.0.0 Major release - Lower permissions level (specific domains instead of all_urls) - Replace only :~:text piece of fragment directives, leaving other directives untouched - Fix: remove text fragment for URLs with hashes - Add tests 0.0.5 - Improve pattern for matching all the Google domains 0.0.4 - Fix an issue with breaking "Tools" buttons functionality on Google 0.0.2 - Initial stable version ============ Tags: Scroll to Text Fragment, fragmentDirective textFragment

It's such a shame that tech companies want to determine that you need something instead of giving you the option. Thank you for this extension!
