Editors' Review

+

Most add-ons throw in some type of search functionality, but few bring extra value to the table. This discreet Internet Explorer plug-in, however, truly helps expand or narrow Web searches.

Xippee is an unobtrusive add-on--it doesn't appear as a toolbar button or new toolbar. Instead it pops up a small panel when you double-click on text in a list of search results--the text blurb with the link, not the link itself. The panel includes a Plus button and a Minus button. Clicking one will either add or remove results that are similar to the one you selected.

This free plug-in for IE performed very well in our tests, responding to our clicks quickly. We liked that Xippees plus and minus panel popped up even while we had our pop-up blocker enabled. Users won't have to worry about opening up their surfing experience to annoying pop-up ads while enjoying Xippees features. We recommend it for anyone using IE for browsing.

"This is really clever!"

May 12, 2008  |  By ColoradoMikeyS

 |  Version: Xippee for Internet Explorer 2

Pros

Wow! This is both a simple and an elegant plug-in. Although I already knew how to use the quotes and the minus sign in my searches, I did get tired of retyping my search to modify it. Problem solved!

"Simple, but effective."

 |  Version: Xippee for Internet Explorer 2

Pros

This is so simple to use, which really adds to how helpful it is. I love how it enables people who don't know what Boolean logic is to actually use Boolean logic.

"Absolutely brilliant!"

September 26, 2007  |  By ordubis

 |  Version: Xippee for Internet Explorer 2

Pros

This is a simple but amazing plug-in, it is a must-have for anyone that searches on google, yahoo, msn, live, ask, google desk, and much more! I'd absolutly recomend it to anyone that must use a search, for an example, when you research something, you are able to refine your search till you get what you want.

Cons

Probobly the only problem I have found with this Plug-in is... It dosen't seem to work on vista; but I believe it should be fixed soon.
