The easiest way to use Google Global is to simply do a search for something on Google. When you see you search results page, simply right click anywhere on the search results page, select “Search Google Global” and select what geographic location you would like to see the results from. It is as simple as that.
There are a few options within Google Global that you can change depending on your personal browsing habits. You can open the search results in a new tab, useful for comparing results, you can add as many locations to your Google Global search options and you can also depersonalize the search results shown by Google Global.
This extension has been a labor of love and we have worked very hard on improving and testing it. One “feature” that did not make this version was the ability to download the extension from the official mozilla.org site. As anyone who has ever developed a Firefox extension before will know, the sandbox waiting time is quite long. If anyone who uses this extension finds it useful and knows what the extension sandbox is, please leave a review and hopefully the next version will be available from the official site.
If anyone has any feedback, bug reports or feature requests, please feel free to let us know.
