In Firefos you should be able to use user styles (userContent.css file in your Firefox's profile), without having to install any extensions.

It was unavailable in my language but appeared once I changed it to english from google preferences.

I noticed this thread that mentions a work-around to get rid of searchwiki:

No such thing as Search Wiki for me (New England area), just the regular old Google web search results with no extras (signed in). Must be another one of those "slow roll outs" Google is famous for.

hi ho

i compiled a little update of that script

[facesaerch.com/widget/searchwiki-on-off.user.js] (firefox / greasemonkey tested)

basically it makes the searchwiki stuff opt-in and you can turn it on/off on the go.

a short explanation what it does
[facesaerch.com/blog/disable-google-search-wiki/]
(but you don't need it, it's basically self explanatory)

Changing your user agent to anything other than Firefox or IE will disable it.

Another option is to add the following to the URL of all searches: &hl=all
