November 6, 2020 Version 1.4.1 Released

Overload Search - advanced Google search chrome extension

This is a small update mainly for SEO and performance. By removing unnecessary font files we were able to reduce the package size dramatically down to 266kb with further reductions possible in future.

Release notes

  • Reduced permissions, previously the tabs permission was required, this has now been changed to just the active tab. This is required to populate the domain search
  • Further Reduction in package size
  • addition of en-us language

Happy Googling!

November 2, 2020 200 Users!

We've reached an amazing milestone of 200 weekly users for the Overload Search chrome extension!

After noticing a trend of France being the main non english user base I decided to translate to French. This gained the extension traction in France after multiple bloggers wrote articles about the extension that were shared on Twitter. This saw a huge increase in installs from both France and Canada and saw the extension reach 200 users!

There is a new version in the works updates to come 🙃 any feedback and feature requests are welcome!

Happy Googling!
