JavaScript, often abbreviated as JS, is a high-level, interpreted programming language that conforms to the ECMAScript specification. 
jQuery is a JavaScript library designed to simplify HTML DOM tree traversal and manipulation.
We can use them to do a wide range of things which we do manually and is tiresome.
Examples: 
 

Note: On first run of the script a popup will come. We have to allow popups because Chrome wants to know if we want multiple tabs to be used or not. Then re-run the script.

 

How to run: 
Search for anything on Google. On Google search results page paste the script on the developer tools console window and press Enter and see the magic.
Let’s see the code:
 

javascript




// dynamically loading the jQuery library
javascript: var fileref = document.createElement('script');
fileref.setAttribute("type", "text/javascript");
fileref.setAttribute("src",
document.body.appendChild(fileref);
 
var arr = []; //this array will contain the links of google search results.
 
setTimeout(function() { 
// We are using setTimeout function so that                      
// jQuery library is loaded fully before running
//rest part of the code
 
   // Accessing the DOM and using it to extract
   // links from the search results
    var count1 = $("div.bkWMgd").length;
    var j;
     
    // There are many div's with this class "div.bkWMgd" but we
    // will be using only the div's which will be
    // containing the search results links,
    // so we have to filter out the div's by performing if-else.
 
    for (j = 0; j < count1; j++) {
        if ($("div.bkWMgd")[j].firstChild == null) {
    // not using this section because it does not contain the links
            continue;
        } else if
      ($("div.bkWMgd")[j].firstChild.className.toString().trim() === "srg") {
            // This div contains the search result links
            var count2 = $("div.bkWMgd")[j].firstChild.children.length;
 
            var i;
            for (i = 0; i < count2; i++) {
                arr.push(
                    $("div.bkWMgd")[j].firstChild.children[i].children[0].
              firstChild.firstChild.firstChild.href.toString().trim());
          // inserting search results links into the array
            }
            count2 = 0;
            continue;
        } else if
     ($("div.bkWMgd")[j].firstChild.innerHTML.toString().trim()==="Web results") {
        // This div also contains the search result links
 
            $("div.bkWMgd")[j].firstChild.remove();
 
            var count2 = $("div.bkWMgd")[j].firstChild.children.length;
            try {      // Handling error if encountered using try catch block
                var i;
                for (i = 0; i < count2; i++) {
                    arr.push(
                        $("div.bkWMgd")[j].firstChild.children[i].children[0].
              firstChild.firstChild.firstChild.href.toString().trim());
                } // inserting links into the array
                count2 = 0;
            } catch (err) {
                console.log('Error handled in: ', j + 'loop');
            }
        }
    }
}, 1000);
 
// opening multiple tabs with the links in the array
function open_win() {
    for (var i = 0; i < arr.length; i++) {
        console.log(arr[i]);
        window.open(arr[i]);
    }
}
 
// in 2.5 seconds multiple tabs will get
// open with the search results links
setTimeout(function() {
    open_win();
}, 2500);
