Improving Your Search Engine

UPDATE: Added the Firefox Plugin!

UPDATE: Added the Chrome Plugin!

UPDATE: Added a search button to Gmail

Nearly every single soul reading this post uses Google. Everybody tries to beat Google. Yahoo and Bing are it's biggest competitors. I'm not here to discuss that, though. Instead, I want to talk about my improvements to Google, Yahoo, and Bing that I want everyone to see.

These changes aren't something that I want Bing and Yahoo and Google to implement. Instead, these changes apply on the user's browser. I do this using Kynetx, the coolest, most useful, super "Bad A" piece of technology I have seen in a long, long time.

Using Kynetx's framework, I have created an app which allows you to view Bing and Yahoo's search results in the same browser window as your Google results. This only works on Google right now, but I do have plans to make it work on Bing and Yahoo.

One other thing that it does is it adds a "Search Bing" button in Gmail, allowing you to search Bing rather than Google. I've seen lots of people complain/be annoyed that there is no way to change it. Well, now there is!

A lot of you are probably thinking, "Why did he make this?" Simple! Because I wanted it! For doing research, finding useful results, and even just comparing differences, this is by far the easiest way to do it.

Lastly, if you'd like to see new features, or are having issues with the app, post a comment!

Now the question is, how do I get it? There are many different ways.

The first is through an information card. Using Azigo, available here for Windows or here for Macs, you can use a special type of information cards called "Action Cards." Here is a Kynetx enabled action card available to download:

 

The other really easy, simple way to use this is through browser extension. I have an Internet Explorer one done, but the FF one isn't working. When I finish it, I'll upload it. It should be uploaded by about 7:30 tonight, so check back!

Download the IE Extension here.

Be sure to close any IE windows you have open before installing!!

Here's the Firefox Extension!

Here's the Chrome extension now too!
