NASA Photos Google Chrome Extension is lame

NASA photos Google extension is kind of lame... first, the photo quality is really bad compared to what I see regularly in Astronomy Picture of the Day and other NASA sites such as Hubble, Mars rovers, etc. Also, that your extension forces me to use Yahoo is doubly lame. Please try again. Thanks. I'm writing this to you before giving your extension a low rating.

  • Hi Blaine thanks for the note. I know we have a couple NASA galleries in various extensions but you're actually bringing up a very good point. We are in the process of migrating from our old platform to a new one which offers more flexibility with the gallery images and much higher image quality. It's the way that we had stored them that made us reduce the quality. When it comes to Yahoo search. We are a company have about four people that need to pay the bills. Yahoo search is how we generate 90% of our revenue so yes we do put that in there but you can go into settings for the extension and turn that off if you want. Give me a call if you want me to walk you through that. Patrick at 614-767-9069. Thank you in advance

  • Thanks Patrick for the reply. Understand about why Yahoo, will look to change in settings... Definitely look forward to when you can provide standard resolution for NASA and related astronomy-space pix. Let me know!
