Fair enough.

The interface is obtrusive and not well thought out. Sometimes clicking the type of search button works and others it doesn't. The always-on-top feature should be configurable.

Butler has 95% of the features of this application, plus its free. My point is not to crap all over the developer of this, I think that its great that people are developing little applications for the mac platform, thats what makes the man a mac. However, like I said before, dont just build a basic application and assume that you can charge 7 bucks for it. Make this one free, keep working on it, make it killer. Then release another application after your name has gotten around town, and charge for that one.

Just a suggestion - Write a review on the program, meaning does it do what it claims, etc..Not if you like the programming language they used, or the idea of the program is not your style.

What I do not understand, is why every person that creates a small little app that is no where near a new concept, and doesn't even that good of a job, thinks they can charge 7 bucks for it. Even though RealBasic won't let you do this, why dont you try to make a menu item that does a search, and the results are in an embedded webkit browser (just like googles task-bar search for windows).

Come on developers, do something original and then charge for it, but dont charge for your high-school computer classes semester project.

Great App! I would like to see it search all the search engines at one and bring up a list of results with hyperlinks to the results. Also it would be great to have yellow pages support for places outside the USA, you yanks seem to forget there are other countries out there!
Looks good though! Keep up the good work

Can't quite figure out why I should use this software, since I'll need a browser anyway to access the results... Also, some search engines can be cut out since they now use the same database (e.g. AltaVista, Yahoo, AlltheWeb). Saying all this, this software seems to do what it claims to do.
