Introducing CC Search Extension


by Mayank Nader on 2019-09-03

This blog is part of the series: GSoC 2019: CC Search Browser Extension

The past three months of Google summer of code has been an amazing learning experience to say the least. I am thrilled to announce that my GSoC project was successfully completed and we were able to achieve more than we aimed for!

CC Search Browser Extension


The three extension stores of the browsers we were building support for have approved the extension 🎉

Install the extension on your favorite browser from the following links:

At inception, we thought that the extension would become a complementary plugin to the amazing CC Search but now I can say with confidence that the extension has the potential to sketch an identity of itself. In this section, I will go through all the major features(exclusive of any technical jargon) of the extension.

Bunch of features. Minimal interface.
Search CC License Images. Easy one-click attribution, image info, and share options.
View saved images in Bookmark Section. Export and import bookmarks from the "Bookmarks" tab in the options page.
Add custom defaults from the options page.
Light mode.
Dark Mode. Looks more cool if the browser is also in dark mode!

We hope that you will give this a shot and maybe use it as your daily driver to search for images. There is so much more that we can do to improve and expand this project. Your help in form of bug reports, feature requests, code contribution will be of great importance in shaping the future of the extension.

You can check out the project on Github.

Come and say hi to us on slack and tell about your experience with CC Search extension. The slack channel is #gsoc-browser-ext.
