Editors' review

Teaching your search engine to return results more focused on your online habits and preferences is a bit easier with this Internet Explorer add-on. By clicking on its results, Surf Canyon "learns" your preferences and focuses subsequent searches accordingly.

Surf Canyon loads into the IE search field at the right end of the URL bar along the top of IE's window. Accessing it is simply a matter of selecting it from the drop-down list of search engines built into the field. It functioned well in our tests, returning results quickly. We liked that by clicking the icon Surf Canyon posted beside each result's link, we opened a cascading set of similar or related links that in other search engines would have been buried on subsequent pages of results. By narrowing the focus of the results in this way, the search engine returns more useful results and "learns" from the user's behavior how to return better results in subsequent searches.

Any level of user will appreciate the ease of use this free search engine offers, and anyone looking for a change in search engine will want to give Surf Canyon a try.

    "Wow! Searching is so much FASTER and EASIER now. I love it!"

    Version: Surf Canyon Search Engine Assistant (for IE) 1.0.1

    Pros

    I really like how once you download Surf Canyon, you can still go to Google or Yahoo or wherever to do your searching. Only once you have Surf Canyon installed, the searching is so much EASIER! Gone are the days of pouring through countless pages of the wrong search results. Now, Surf Canyon will pinpoint EXACTLY what I'm looking for. Awesome!

    Version: Surf Canyon Search Engine Assistant (for IE) 1.0.0

    Pros

    Surf Canyon was recommended to me by a friend who loves it and I decided to give it a try. I'm now a huge fan as well. It has made my difficult searches 100 times easier and saved me enormous amounts of time. Surf Canyon has also helped to locate information that I had not been able to locate previously. I am now recommending this product to all my friends and colleagues. It's a definite keeper.

    "Make Search Useful Again"

    March 14, 2008   |   By stevenmbuelow

    Version: Surf Canyon Search Engine Assistant (for IE) 1.0.0

    Pros

    I'm a sales person and a power user of search engines. I also hate invasive plug ins - most sales tools are annoying to have on your browser (Netcraft). Surf Canyon is low profile, light weight, and extremely empowering. For instance, I understand that Google or Yahoo are top loaded results due to people gaming the algorithm - Surf canyon lets you simply click on a link that is close to the concept or information you were looking for and queries up to 100 pages out and gives you more results like it without a page refresh or a wait.

    Fantastic tool. More people should try it.

    Cons

    I'd like to know a little bit more about how the search tool thinks.
