Google implemented my results preview concept. You’ll start seeing integrated previews now in your google results – they did a great job! It’s nice to be validated, and frankly, nice to have the monkey off my back as far as trying to repeatedly resurrect Google Results Walker. Re-engineering someone else’s web site is fun as hell, until you’ve over-committed, and then the original website exits stage left on you and invalidates all your work.

It sure was a fun ride while it lasted – 50,000 downloads in its heyday, when I was knee-deep in the Mozilla Add-ons developer community. That’s the most successful software I’ve ever written, in terms of users. Coupled with the joy of a completely cross-platform solution!

So to sum up, thanks Google for improving your search in exactly the way I thought needed it to be done. :>
