Script Summary: Add direct links to images and pages in google image search. Works in Chrome, Firefox and Opera. Please report any bug, I use only Firefox, so some updates my break other browsers compatibility.

Version: 5.2

If you don't like the frame that Google Images leave in the pages when you click on an image, this script is for you.
For each result image this script change the link to point directly to the image, and add another link that point to the page that holds the image.

Opera users please read [this](

To install in google chrome Google chrome follow [this]( instructions or use the extension [Tampermonkey](

The basic search is now broken, details here.
