iFind free download for Mac

iFind5.0

08 March 2012

Speedy Internet search utility.

Overview

iFind is the best way to search the Web and is the Internet search tool for the modern Internet user.

When searching for something simple on the net - like a name, the standard search engines do a marvelous job. Only sometimes the results are overwhelming.

Searching today with Google my own name Nic Kolbe returns 591.000 results, simply by typing my full name into the search field. Google returns all records that include my first name plus it returns all records that include my surname.

Many people know - and many don't, that one can search for records that include only the complete name by simply putting the search string into this format: "Nic+Kolbe" which returns only 925 results.

iFind offers both search modes and lets you easily choose the search engine of your choice!

Search Google and all other major search engines: Alta Vista, AOL, Ask, Baidu, Bing, Dogpile, DuckDuckGo, Facebook, Flickr, Lycos, Mahalo, Yahoo, Yandex, Yippy, YouTube.

iFind is one of the most efficient Internet search tools available.

It definitely is simple. After reading the glowing reviews here, I downloaded right away. I was a little disappointed to discover that all iFind apparently does (correct me if I'm wrong) is put quotation marks around your search terms before sending them off to the chosen search engine. What's the advantage to running an app vs. typing a pair of quotation marks? Moreover, I frequently use a combination of quoted terms and unquoted keywords in my Google searches, which would be impossible using this app.

Very good software. The first time I've used it I found information I was looking for a while. Accurate, easy to use and the price is ok.

Well, I am glad you figured out, how the software works... Putting more defined search into quotes requires the pressing of 4 keys every time. So who is the idiot? As I mentioned before, most iFind users know how to put quotes manually, still they prefer iFind since it is more comfortable and faster! Just type and hit return... Please refrain from commenting on this software if your ego is to big for your IQ... Thanks!

As rightfully stated most people don't know how to use search engines properly. But even people that know it, don't want to type every time additional characters. iFind is putting every search into quotation marks and links the search data with a plus symbol. A lot of people who know about proper internet search still prefer iFind... iFind never claimed to be a search-engine break through or wonder but many people are appreciating the software. If you have a problem with that, stop using iFind and go back to manual. Seems that most negative comments are rather ego-based and confused or from the software Mafia, trying to sell their own crap and running down any competition... What sick state of mind would complain about something helpful and free? Just shaking my head in disbelief... DEVELOPER

I am in total agreement with Paul Worth. I cannot see that this application does anything at all that any user of any of the available search engines cannot do for himself/herself by simply by using his/her chosen search engine properly. The problem is that so few users of search engines take the time to study fully and carefully how to use their chosen search engine to maximum benefit, that they rarely get the most out of it. I really would like the Developer to advise, candidly, just what iFind does to one's search terms OTHER than put quotation marks around them !! I stress that I have nothing at all against iFind, but am utterly mystified as to why anyone at all would rave about it, or consider it some sort of search-engine break-through or wonder.

I'm pretty sure "exacter" isn't a word.

Quite handy, but need some work. • Improve Icon • Make the resizer work or just take it off • Try and intergrate the results This would greatly improve the app.
