Incorrect Google Images Search URL [Fixed 2.6 b372]

Hi, there.

 

For as long as I can remember, Alfred includes a predefined web search for Google Images. However, the web search no longer reflects Google's current URL structure for image searches, which results in a redirect and a flash of unstyled content.
 

Alfred's Google Images search URL:

https://www.google.com/images?q=alfred

 

New Google Images search URL:

https://www.google.com/search?q=alfred&tbm=isch

 

Of course, I am able to create a custom web search with the correct URL. However, I would ideally prefer not to do this (at least I shouldn't need to do this). Regardless, I can't imagine this would be at all difficult to fix internally. Therefore, I do hope you find a moment to tweak this and make Alfred just a little bit better.

 

Thanks,

Caleb

Thanks for pointing this out... I'll update Alfred's default Google image web search for the next release. That first link does redirect to the second one for me though.

 

Cheers,

Andrew
