A fan of startups, entrepreneurship, getting things done faster, penning the occasional blog post, taking photos, designing, listening to good music and making lurrrve.

Last week we announced the release of Google’s latest input into the world of search, “SearchWiki”. Let’s face it, Google’s latest release “Search Wiki” isn’t for everyone and although it’s well put together – some of us want things back to the way they were.

The guys at Google Operating System pointed us to a great greasemonkeyscript which reverts everything back to how you remember it.

To get this working, ensure you have Greasemonkey the Firefox extension installed, then simply click here to install the appropriately titled NoSearch Wiki userscript.

Unfortunately, if you’ve already played around with WikiSearch and promoted/demoted certain listings, they will remain the same. On a positive note though, you should be able to use this on Opera, Fluid (mac) and Safari with Greasekit installed.
