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.

"Flashy, cool, and useful!"

1. Get search results as you type
2. No need to submit multiple queries to find what you need
3. Keeps a useful history of what you search for so you can find it again quickly
4. Supports Yahoo! and Google


None for me!


It's cool! Get it! You don't even get search suggestions in the search box on IE7, and Inquisitor offers so much more!

Helpful, nice & quick, compact, and aesthetically it's clean and easy on the eyes.


Opens a clicked link on the current page, even with IE set to open links in a new tab - no option presented to change this either
