What is Make Google Images Great Again?
'Make Google Images Great Again' is a Firefox extension that brings the [View Image] and [Search by Image] buttons back to Google Images search results. The useful functionality was removed by Google due to copyright concerns from Getty Images. After installing this add-on, users can easily view images and search by image directly from the expanded previews in the search results. For any issues or suggestions, users can connect with the developer via email or through the GitHub page.
After you install this extension, you should see the [View Image] and [Search by Image] buttons in the expanded preview of Google Image search results.
Why doesn't Google Image search have these very useful buttons any more? Because Getty Images was worried that those buttons made it too easy to commit copyright infringement, and Google desperately wanted to be able to continue to include Getty Images in its image search results.
