Boounce

Author(s):



When you think of search, most think of Google, Yahoo, and Bing. But a growing number of searches are done on smaller, fine-tuned sites like Yelp, SoundCloud, or IMDb. Boounce produces these search engines on demand in your browser and discreetly when you search Google.

"...a great example of how tools can make searching much more fun... lets you easily jump between various search engines and discover more topical search databases." --MakeUseOf.com
