Summary

It currently has only one feature, fixing the search tab order, but new features will be added in the future.

Feature.

  1. Fixed tab order: Google changes the order of search tabs depending on the keyword. For example, if I search for "cat", the order is "All/Images/Videos/News/Shopping", but if I search for "paris", then the order is "All/Maps/Images/News/Videos". This has been annoying me crazily, because I tend to click wrong tab. Now with this extension, one can fix the tab order however one likes. For example, I use "All/Images/Videos/News". Now, whatever I search Google for, the tab order is always the same.

This extension currently works only on "google.com", "google.co.uk", "google.co.jp", and "google.fr" and when the language is English, Japanese, or French. You can use "https://google.com/ncr?hl=en" to use "google.com" instead of your country's Google, and force English instead of your local language.

The storage permission is need to save the tab order settings.
