It doesn't seem to intercept google search result URLs, which is why I downloaded this in the first place. Clicking on any google search result still brings up the google URL plus a bunch of parameters before it silently redirects to the actual URL. See "skip redirect" extension in the Chrome store for a working example. For some reason it doesn't work in Edge despite being allowed to install. Hence why I looked for another redirect remover, and found this extension. I literally don't care about the other features. I just want to stop google interjecting their crappy redirects in search results.
