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.

We've updated http://www.surfcanyon.com/privacy.jsp to reflect the fact that the only place we put ads is on http://www.SurfCanyon.com. Our own search engine is not required for use of our browser add-on.

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.

There are no 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.

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.

Please try the latest version of Surf Canyon. It should work with Firefox 3.5. Thank you.

Download it using Firefox through Mozilla AddOns instead of MacUpdate. The installation is quick and effective.

Surf Canyon had trouble on 07 Jul 2008
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.

Your most recent submission of Surf Canyon was rejected because someone in your organization insists on submitting each version update as a wholly new listing when it is in fact an update to an existing listing.

Please submit correctly, thanks.
