Tried to use this for a quick search and the first thing it did was start asking (one by one) where a bunch of apps,which I don't own, were located. I just quit after four Microsofts and an Adobe.

I have one word for anybody who wants customization: iSeek This program is a fully customizable search engine that lives in the menu bar, so it takes up no screen space

Nice little piece of software here. I'm impressed. However.............. When, oh when, oh when is someone going to create one of these apps with a USER CONFIGURABLE interface. I like to use meta search engines such as Dogpile. It makes me think developers have a vested interest in promoting something that actually doesn't need promoting: Google, the world's biggest search engine!

Here here! I too, like Dogpile. And wondered why its not included. And how sure are we of "spyware" with this? Offtopic: anyone know how to change the Safari "default" Google search to a different engine?

Everyone's complaints seem to be fixed in this version. No installer. No application searcher. It's a nice alternative to use, I suppose, if you don't want to use the browser much.

It seemed to want to know where my Adobe programs were located on my computer. It gave me an uncomfortable feeling.

as this app seems to want to know what programs are on your hard drive I suspect it is some kind of spyware DO NOT INSTALL

Spyware? It's not spyware, the application launcher search has a bug in it, which will be fixed soon.

Yes, I must add my dissenting voice to these other people's. 1. There is absolutely no need for an installer! Yes, it's clever, but save it for something that needs it! 2. Don't tie me into Google and your choice of search engines. The only value a piece of software like this has is to provide an alternative to Safari's built-in Google search. People use all sorts of things, from Alltheweb to Teoma to their own intranet search tools. Are you going to add a custom option for each and every user? No. So make it configurable!

These extra search engine apps, whether in the menu bar, in the dock, on the desktop or on your browser are all very well, but they're all the same. Although I admire the developers I find it such a pity that they never give you the option to add your own search engine of preference. It's ALWAYS GOOGLE and nothing else. If I could add my own choice of engine THAT would make it truly effective - at the moment though it's somewhat superfluous, just another Google search thingy.

There are other search engines on the search menu. Email us the search engine you would like and we'll put it in the next release if possible.

If you use Konfabulator, there's a nice widget that's customizable to whatever search engine you'd like: http://www.widgetgallery.com/view.php?widget=36011
