Clean Google search URLs

http://www.mattcutts.com/blog/clean-up-extra-url-parameters-when-searching-google/

I set the URL field to be ā€œ{google:baseURL}search?q=%sā€ (without the quotes).

Now when you search for [flowers] the url is just http://www.google.com/search?q=flowers. Ah, nice clean urls in the browser bar.

Original settings:

{google:baseURL}search?{google:RLZ}{google:acceptedSuggestion}{google:originalQueryForSuggestion}{google:searchFieldtrialParameter}{google:instantFieldTrialGroupParameter}sourceid=chrome&client=ubuntu&channel=cs&ie={inputEncoding}&q=%s
