How Does It Work?

This browser application integrates a new feature that displays search results from some of your favorite sites directly in the window that you are viewing, without detracting from your interaction with your favorite sites. We will automatically pass the search words you type to our valued partners (such as Yahoo!, YouTube, etc) so that we can help to improve the relevancy of the results and ads presented to you. We will not alter the search results provided by your chosen search provider. Instead we will supplement and improve relevancy of your searches by providing additional, relevant results from these valued partners. This also helps us to offer our products free of any service charges. These results and ads are directly integrated into the search engine results page in order to improve the relevancy of your searches while maintaining a unified search experience that interacts seamlessly with your favorite search results pages. You can easily uninstall our product from the Add/Remove control panel.
