Editors' Review


Since being purchased by Yahoo, Inquisitor has been revamped from the ground up. Now available for Firefox and Internet Explorer as well as Safari, the add-on revs up your browser's search box, giving it a much-needed kick in the pants.

Inquisitor is designed to help people get to information faster, suggesting search terms as you start typing and then showing an updated list of possible Web sites below the search box. It works and feels similar to Google Chrome's Omnibar or Firefox 3's "Awesome" bar. The results are individualized, too: it spotlights Web pages a person has already visited and customizes search results according to previous searches. In addition, on Internet Explorer, Inquisitor can help retrieve sites a person has bookmarked.

You can control how many results appear, and also select via Inquisitor which search engine is the default and add more to your list. Inquisitor is an example of the increasing intelligence that Internet companies are trying to build into computers, and a useful add-on for people who want a helping hand getting to the information they seek in record time.

"I used to love Firefox. Now it does not work"

November 01, 2008  |  By nelsondrc

 |  Version: Inquisitor for Firefox 1.0.2 beta


I do not like anything about this 1.0.2 beta


The browser wikk not open new tabs. It will not open a link in a new tab. The address bar will not show the current page URL. For me it is useless.


I have to figure out how to back to an earlier version.
