Case sensitive Google search

Figure 1: Case Sensitive Google Search

Google does not support "case sensitive" searches (and here and here). It does seem to return slightly different results depending on the case of the search query, but if you are only interested in the exact "case sensitive" matches you're on your own.

To solve this problem, I've written a small Javascript snippet that shades results from Google searches if not exactly matching the case-sensitive search query.

You can download it as:

javascript:(function(){var s = document.createElement('script'); s.setAttribute('type', 'text/javascript'); s.setAttribute('src', 'https://lbolla.info/cssearch/js'); document.getElementsByTagName('head')[0].appendChild(s);})();

A demo is available here.

Let me know what you think!
