The only google url-redirect/tracking cleaner that currently (2.8.2013) works with Firefox 23.

Thanks for this great addon Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I really appreciate this addon. One thing to suggest...remove Gmail's link mangling too! I don't know exactly what happens behind the scenes with links in Gmail -- the links appear to go directly to the indicated web page -- but when you click a link it will actually open a new tab with the same URL location as the Gmail message you were reading and then the page will be redirected. Normal web pages that open links in new tabs will momentarily show the URL "about:blank" before loading the desired link, but if you watch carefully Gmail's links load a page from Google first, not about:blank (try it). Also, if you go to the advanced Firefox options and set it to warn you when a page tries to perform a redirect, you will get the warning every time you click a link in Gmail! Very annoying.

I tested it and Gmail doesn't do any link mangling - that's merely its way of ensuring that the link is opened in a new tab. No additional request is being made (can be verified with an extension like HttpFox), you go directly to the link target. Gmail's address merely shows up because that page opened the tab (with dynamically generated content I guess), it isn't an actual request.

If you still don't like it, you can avoid this by opening the links in a new tab yourself - middle-click the link or keep the Ctrl key down while clicking (Command key on Mac OS X).

If you do not like your surfing habit and preference to be tracked by Google, this is a simple that works. It basically replaces the Google tracking link in your search result page with the real URL. *Thumbs up*

Get the speed back in Google searches! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Google take note! I found the tracking rubbish inserted into URLs slowed searches so much that in the end I switched to Yahoo. This brilliant add-on (the most useful I have) stops Google lobotomising itself in this way. Now my searches are back to their old efficiency.

Just Awesome! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I used to have a lot of trouble copying and pasting links from Google searches. Unless the result page is opened, we'd never be able to copy the actual link.

Made my life easier. Full 5 stars.Thank you developer.

I'm sure not many people are using this. However, I find this addon an amazing addition to my Firefox installation. I like to copy links from Google search results and Google always modify these links in the search results page for tracking purposes, perhaps. It gives a long weird-looking URLs instead of just a few character URL. It's difficult to cleanup manually, but with this tool it is done automatically. I'm not sure it affects the search impressions on those results but I like this addon on how it did amazing cleanup on those long URLs.

People who are in the field of SEO would love this addon, definitely!

Awesome...just the addon I needed.
Just one thing though...after enabling this, the web history in Google cannot show which links I clicked from the search results. Is there any way to fix that?
Thanks.

The link mangling is how Google tracks which links you click - you can either have web history or proper links, not both.

Awesome! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

It's been SO annoying since Google started scrambling their result links. I mean, they're giving you a link to a page—what's the difference if you copy it there, or on the page itself? Really.

Anyway, thanks very much for fixing this nuisance!

Simply Awesome .... Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is exactly what we expect from a genius like " Wladimir Palant" . AMAZING to say the least.
This man revolutionized the Net Search by sthg as stunning as Adblock.

Edit: IT seemed to work perfectly well on normal google search, but when i disabled Javascript on Google then what I see is quiet confusing for me. Thes first time i hover over the link i see that old"google redirected link" in status bar, but if i hover over it 2nd time that one is gone and i just see normal link.
So its a special request to Mr Wladimir Palant to plz tell us that whether this addon works with javascript disabled or not.
Thanks

Google shows you a different web page if JavaScript is disabled - it no longer has direct links, all links are mangled from the beginning. So this add-on cannot do anything, it merely prevents manipulation of links after the page loads.
