Google Photo Link with Flickr 1.0

Script Summary: Replaces the link on the Google Bar that says Photo from going to Picasa to Flickr.

Okay, maybe the title is a little misleading, but that's what I wanted to do. I love Google for mostly everything, but one thing Yahoo did right was to snatch up Flickr. Flickr has so much more to offer that Picasa doesn't. One side note though; Flickr doesn't have a desktop photo organizer, but that's no real loss for me.

Nevertheless, I love how Google has started to add their "gbar" (Google Bar) to the top of all their applications. Even though they aren't consistent, it's nice to see, and use. After a while, I noticed myself clicking on Photo when I wanted to go to Flickr, not Picasa. Well, rather than fix my own stupid mistake and not click the link, I decided to fix the link and make it point to Flickr instead. Sorry Google, but I just enjoy Flickr more.

Here's how I did it.
