Editors' Review

+

When Google, Yahoo, or any other major search engine overwhelms you with so many matches it reads more results than dollars in the national debt, ChunkIt might be the plug-in for you. Available for Firefox and Internet Explorer, it "chunks" up your search returns, providing snippets of relevant text.

The add-on splits your browser tab into two vertical sections, the left side with the ChunkIt results and the right with unchunked returns. Clicking on the text of a ChunkIt result loads the text in the right pane, highlights the relevant bit in yellow, and scrolls directly to it. A link at the top of the pane opens the page that your result lives on in a new tab.

This is a large plug-in, weighing in at more than 8MB. Using it requires use of the ChunkIt toolbar, something that may not go over well as browser design becomes more streamlined. Users who need help narrowing down broad searches will find this plug-in exceptionally useful. On the other hand, users comfortable maneuvering through "the Google" might find ChunkIt extraneous to their needs.

Pros

I love using ChunkIt and I agree with the post above - it works great with craigslist and I really like using it with amazon.com as well.Great split screen and I appreciate that my search terms are highlighted in different colors.

Cons

Nothing really to comment on here, other than I sometimes forget that 'enter' is chunk Google but the back button seems to work well to fix that.

"Soooo useful"

October 05, 2008  |  By bsmellyfoot

 |  Version: ChunkIt Firefox 1.1.1.0021

Pros

-So useful for writing papers and doing research--helped me weed out irrelevant sources for a religion paper I wrote last week
-The orange guy is so cute!

Cons

Is a little slow when my wireless signal is weak, but nothing else really

Summary

As a student I use ChunkIt primarily for academic research, but I have used it for stuff not related to school and it was just as helpful. Use it most often with eBay.

"This Add On is great. Really helps all searches."

October 05, 2008  |  By beejer9

 |  Version: ChunkIt Firefox 1.1.1.0021

Pros

This tool is easy to use and very powerful. I find the ability to preview links before opening them really helpful. The split screen is great for shopping sites and CraigsList.

Cons

There is nothing not to like.

Summary

This search tool helps me find information and save time. I really like the ability to switch search engines with the drop down window. Once this product is discovered by main street it will get a lot of press and great reviews.
