Do you hate getting Experts Exchange cluttering up your Google search results? A few of my friends and I do. I recently found a Firefox add-on developed by Greg Hosilyk called GoogEEFree. It is a simple search add-on that adds the option to the search bar next to the URL bar. The add-on uses a Google custom search and works like a charm.
Within two days after writing this I had 6 friends on Twitter tell me thank you and that they hate Experts Exchange, while 1 friend basically said I was being lame. I hadn’t realized there were so many other people who despise Experts Exchange. I was also checking my visitor stats the day after posting this and came across this in my stats:
I am not sue how they found my post but I couldn’t stop laughing when I found out that someone in the Experts Exchange network visited my blog post on them.
Firefox 3.7 Alpha is available for download for developers to try out but it is still very alpha. I love the humor that the Mozilla developers have as seen through the icon used for Firefox 3.7a. The developers have lovingly named the alpha “Minefield”. Love it! ; ) Still want to try it out? Download Firefox 3.7 Alpha
