    There's solutions for ff,chrome, safari...

    The solution should not change anything else or break other things.

    I have the google domains in the 'compatibility view' & restricted zone in order to force google to look right (have the black menu bar at top)

    @androidi: Use Bing? ;)

    I went over that before, Bing results not good enough.

     

    This isn't about click tracking but fixing the back button + copy address which get broken when forcing google to look right using restricted zone + compat view.

    I suppose alternate question is how to get google to have the black menu bar on top without having it in restricted zone and compat view..

    Found a new parameter by searching about the menu.. noj=1 brings the black menu bar back.

    https://www.google.com/?noj=1&gws_rd=cr (gws_rd forces to use the .com as the others have missing options from the menu bar)

    edit: removing google from compat view & restricted zone and using that url fixes the back button. No fix for copying the link from the search results. Some have suggested holding rmb then going on top of the link to release but doesn't work.

    @androidi: I find it interesting that Google's results are "better" enough than Bing's that you'll invest this much time and effort.

    It's been years since Bing didn't give me the results I was looking for. Maybe time to try it again? The only thing I go back to Google for is their maps.
