How to Disable Google Instant Previews

If you find Google’s Instant Previews feature as useless as I do – you know, those images popping up near search results, often similarly unwanted (when triggered by a wrong click) as Snap site previews – maybe this User script is for you. I use several machines and browsers, though, so always installing add-ons when Google rolls out something unwanted is suboptimal in the long run (opening links in a new window is something else I don’t like, for instance, and whenever I disable it – even if I would do so across browsers and machines – it’ll come back the next time I empty my cache, because Google thinks that’s best for people located in China; another feature which I practically never use is the left-hand side bar... perhaps one day we’ll need a Simple Google add-on to get rid of a lot of these things at once).
