As we know, recently the new Google Images started working in Opera without masking/spoofing. Many users are unhappy with the new Google Images and want the old version back. So I will tell how to. While there are simple solutions available (adding &sout=1 to URL etc.), they are temporary and need to be done again if using Google Images again. But I will write about a permanent method by which you can always use the old version without opening and changing anything again. The method is UserJS
. I am using Windows here.
1. Go to http://userscripts.org/scripts/source/82140.user.js
2. Press Ctrl+A and now press Ctrl + C to copy the selected material.
3. Press Windows key+R. Type "notepad" (without quotes) and press Enter key.
4. Press Ctrl+V in the Notepad window to paste the selected content.
5. Click File menu > Save. READ THE NEXT STEP CAREFULLY (READ WORD TO WORD) BEFORE FINALLY SAVING.
6. In the Save dialog box, in the File name
field type "googleimg.js" (WITH QUOTES
7. Save it to anywhere.
8. Now open Google Images HOMEPAGE in Opera. Right-click an empty area of the webpage and select Site Preferences.
9. Click the "Scripting" tab.
11. Now browse the folder in which you saved googleimg.js and click OK to close Site preferences.
12. Reload Google Images homepage and enjoy searching.
The above steps only need to be done once. After that, you can use old version of Google Images forever (except if Google deletes the old version from it's server) without changing any setting.CreditsThe credit for the method goes to P.K.ARUN of ashout.comhttp://www.ashout.com/get-old-google-image-search-option/
I just explained it in steps which even a beginner Opera user can do.
Although the most steps were for Firefox, Opera happily accepts UserJS.
Firefox does not support using UserJS without Greasemonkey extension, but Opera supports it natively.
EDIT: Corrected UserJS script download link.
