I installed this and it worked fine but then i installed a few ADDON UPDATES, and next day google results walker was not at all on the google page. It dissappeared. So i uninstalled and reinstalled and still not working. I forget which updates I installed yesterday so i don't know if thats the problem. Also googlepedia won't install either. Anyone else have same problem and has figured out if & what installed updates caused this. Also , when google results did work for that day, i would have liked to resize (at anytime) and would like very very SKINNY SCROLLBARS to save space and clutter. Would love to have this addon working! Thankyou!
If you're trying to use google.ca, make sure you have the latest release (at least 1.0.1), and it should work for you.
I'll add the scrollbar request to the list, it's a great idea. In the meantime, you can try using the NoSquint addon and reduce the font size to make things fit better. See the homepage for more tips.
The googlepedia request is a bit tricky. My addon and googlepedia are both trying to use the same space. I'll see if I can update the addon to get out of googlepedia's way, if it's installed, when the preview is turned off.
This addon isn't bad.And worked in the past. Sadly there's no development actually.If this addon does "not" work I can recommend this Greasmonkey Script: Google Preview Pane for Greasemonkey http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/50420 It is similar to Google Walker. But first you should try google walker.
I don`t speak english very well so i excuse about it since now, I liked tihs add on a lot, and I configure the google results page to make the preview window bigger, like a 70% of the screen (it is for youtube and sites like that were you wanna see everytihg and not only the 25% of it), and it works but when I select a second page, it comes back to the 50-50 configuration. I`ve tried to make this configuration permanent (I ve tried the google customize add on, and the mozilla view options to do it but it hasn`t worked).... it could be a very nice touch and a very usefull way to search... If you know how can I do it please e-mail me (email@example.com) or something.....thanks for that work
I agree that the toughest part is seeing all of the results preview - most monitors don't have enough width. I am working on solutions, see the ResultsWalker web page for my notes. Currently, I have had the best luck using the NoSquint addon to shrink the results, try it out and let me know what you think. [firstname.lastname@example.org]
Google can only go so far in providing search links, so much time is often wasted clicking on those links and going to sites that are not what you're looking for. Results Walker saves an amazing amount of time, displaying the page results by mouse-over!
When you hover over the result, the right pane quickly displays the page in question so I can see where I want to go. This "Walking" is the evolution of simple "browsing" and "searching" and adds an incredible amount of functionality to web navigation!
Canadagirl (and everyone!): Log in and get the experimental version 1.0.1 (click on "See All Versions"). It works with google.ca and saves your preferences, so you can disable the preview when you want.
As requested, I added an enable/disable toggle. You can open the preview in a new tab if you right click in the preview window and select "This Frame->Open Frame in New Tab". See the homepage for more features and documentation. Thanks!
