Surf Canyon5.4.0

19 January 2015

Firefox plug-in that accelerates searches on various sites.

Overview

Surf Canyon lets you find stuff faster on Google, Yahoo!, and Bing by digging out search results from as deep as page 100. Surf Canyon automates the discovery of relevant results buried in the search pages on Google, Yahoo!, and Bing, and adds image previews to Craigslist. Simply enter your query at one of these search engines as you always would. When you click a result that appeals to you, the extension automatically re-ranks the result set in order to bring forward what you need while suppressing what you don't want. 'Recommended' results can come from as deep as page 100.

Use this if you want (I sure won't), but read the privacy policy first. It IS adware and it DOES collect personal information for the developer's use.

Okay, Mr. Developer, tell me this. Does this plug-in continue to collect information from me when I'm running Chrome in Incognito mode?

I didn't say you shared PII with third parties. You do collect it, though, and according to section 1.3 of your privacy policy, you use it "to customize sponsored results ... on selected search engines;" i.e., to deliver targeted ads.

This excellent addition to your internet search tools will be available before too long for Safari(hooray!). Developer's currently working on it. If you wanna be a tester, let the developer know. He'll let you know when Surf Canyon for Safari is ready for testing.

I am not a computer person. I am a hybrid lazy/hard working person. Yes, it is possible. In any case, I am not the type to be downloading all the freshest software off the net. I am going to be working or napping. However, I did download Surfcanyon based solely on the fact that I had heard it would make my life easier by making my searching more efficient. It was true, Surfcanyon was awesome. And now that I just downloaded the update, I am even happier. So happy that I am spending my free time writing a mini review. Why am I so happy? Because now even my Craigslist searches are improved. I love Surfcanyon.

A small error made it's way into the last build we uploaded, but it's been fixed. To eliminate the JavaScript errors, please uninstall Surf Canyon (Tools-->Add-ons-->Surf Canyon-->Uninstall) and then reinstall the application off this page. We apologize for any inconvenience and value the feedback. Please continue to let us know what you think about our extension. We hope that you appreciate our innovative approach to improving search. By the way, uninstalling as described above will completely remove the application. Nothing else is required.

this is an easy site to download and you don't even know it's there until you need it (which for me is constantly).Love that it saves me time and energy and digs down for pages I personally, would never find.
