Editors' Review


There are many toolbars in the world, and this is one of them. This one offers prizes for using its search engine.

Blingo installs to Internet Explorer. Its less cluttered than many toolbars, making it relatively elegant, as toolbars go. It offers the obligatory search field, a toggle for selecting Web or image searches, a button for highlighting selected text on a page, a small window with scrolling promotional messages from Blingo, a pop-up blocker, and a button for managing your toolbars.

This free toolbar performed well during all our tests, quickly returning results and navigating to a selected site when we clicked its link. We didn't win any prizes during our tests, but the most common prizes seemed to be gift cards to online and brick-and-mortar stores (Amazon, Target, and so forth), and movie tickets.

If you want a change from Yahoo or Google, and want at least the possibility of winning a prize, Blingo is free option that anyone can use.

Overall this search engine is great! It pulls results from Yahoo, Ask, and MSN Live Search Engines. It allows you to win prizes while searching. It's an overall "fun" product. I would reccomend it.
