Google’s advanced search tools can help students find useful information that doesn’t necessarily appear at the top of search results pages. Unfortunately, students often forget about the advanced search options or don’t even know where to find them. There is a Chrome extension that aims to help alleviate those problems.

Fast Advanced Google Search is a Chrome extension that puts a shortcut to the advanced search tools right next to the URL field in Chrome. Click the extension once to open Google’s advanced search options without leaving the search results page that you are currently viewing.

Applications for Education

Fast Advanced Google Search could be useful for quickly showing students the differences between search results with and without advanced search filters applied to a query.
