A week ago, Google introduced real-time search – a new feature that displays live updates from sites like Twitter and FriendFeed as part of the normal search results. Reactions were generally positive, but, as multiple users noted, there was one thing missing – an “off” button. You could pause the live updates, but not get rid of them entirely – until today. Today, I present you a way to remove the realtime search widget from your Google results.
I’ve written a Greasemonkey script that hides the “Latest results for “keyword”” box. It also suspends the live updates, preventing Google from wasting your bandwidth needlessly. Just install this userscript, and you won’t see the real-time results again.
Compatible browsers :
Sidenote : Even with this script installed, you can still access the realtime results directly by clicking on the “Latest updates” link in search options.Related posts :
