Google Search Simple Clarity Minimal

Added by SingularityUtopia@userstyles, Created: May 27, 2014, Updated: Mar 04, 2017


Simple Google Search modifications. Clearer results. For desktop, may work on smaller screens.

Light-colored boxes for main search-results page. Standard (blue-lilac-grey). News results (yellow), image results (green). Various other minor modifications regarding font size, spacing, etc. has a grey-beige colored box around each search-result-title, plus other tweaks.

Right-hand Google info-panel ( modified.

Promos ("Come here often? Make Google your homepage" etc) and cookie/privacy nagging (tick/click consent box) all removed.

Horizontal scroll, too wide for screen (main search) Google error, removed.

Questions to, or start discussion.

This style was my very first style, it's a work in progress, the css is a bit messy (due to being my 1st) but it works fine.
