This has got to be one of the more frequently used apps on my machine. I don't understand why it's no longer available for download. If Ambrosia really thinks they can add value that's actually worth buying, they would would allow the continued distribution of this app.

Anonymous, you are missing something: the point is that you can (and should) customize it to search in your prefered search engines, *not* only in Google! - Anyway, meanwhile it has been assimilated by Ambrosia :-(

Crap app. What's the point if you can only search in Google. Bloody pointless as you might as well have your browser running.

Superb software that works very well. It could use a better method for editing sites, however.
