Remove Google Redirect in Google Search Results 0.0.4
Immediately after performing a search on Google, if one mouse-overs one of the results, one will see the true URL of the link. However, mousedown adds an ugly Google redirect to the URL. This add-on prevents that from happening.
About this Add-on
Google uses this for redirect for tracking, which may be reasonable, but makes it very inconvenient to copy out links.
Note that the implication of this technique is that it will only work on Google sites where the redirect link is generated client-side. In particular, it does not work on Google Images, where the redirect link is generated server-side.
