Say Hello to the CC Search (Creative Commons) Browser Extension!

From a Creative Commons Blog Post:

Creative Commons (CC) is working towards providing easy access to CC-licensed and public domain works. One significant step towards achieving that goal was the release of CC Search in 2019. Through this search and indexing tool, we’re making a plethora of CC-licensed images accessible in one place. As CC Search expands to include more than just images, CC is also developing a suite of applications and interfaces to help users across the world interact, consume, and reuse open access content.

The CC Search Browser Extension is one such application. This browser extension is an open-source, lightweight plugin that can be installed and used by anyone with an updated web browser.

Features of the Browser Extension:

  • Search And Filter CC-Licensed Content
  • One-Click Attribution
  • Download Images (and Attribution)
  • Bookmark Images

  • Custom Settings
  • Sync Your Custom Settings and Bookmarks Across Devices

The latest version of the extension is available for installation via Mozilla FirefoxGoogle Chrome, and Opera.
