Mac running or later. Release notes.

Always at your service
Search the web with as few clicks as possible: one. You still have to type your query, though.

Just the good stuff
Don't waste your time with too many search results and irrelevant pages.

You have the choice
Search thoroughly with filters and advanced Boolean operators or as as fast as possible.

Ask the right people
Don't waste your time with a general-purpose search engine. Choose before you search.

The web is your library
From "A" like "Apple" to "S" like "Social Networks". Check out where you can search.

Search the web like with Spotlight

DEVONagent Express adds a web search field to your menu bar. Google, Bing, and many more always at your service. Its keyboard shortcut saves you even that click.

Just click DEVONagent Express's menu bar icon, or press its keyboard shortcut, and start typing instead of switching to your browser, opening a new window, and clicking the search field first. Hit Return and, like Spotlight, DEVONagent Express begins collecting the results.


Open only the relevant stuff in your browser

Never find yourself again opening page after page just to find out that there's nothing relevant there. Select before you browse.

View your results directly in the menu (contrary to our free DEVONagent Lite), ranked by relevance from top to bottom. Identify the best results using preview icons, smart summaries, and large pop-overs showing even more details. Then open the ones you like in your favorite web browser or drag them to other apps to save them for later or easily share them with friends or colleagues.

In-depth or fast: Your choice

DEVONagent Express looks at all results to give you only the good stuff. Or it delivers all results as fast as it can. Switch between both modes with a click.

DEVONagent Express doesn't simply trust the search engines. It filters all returned results again, allowing you to use advanced Boolean operators, proximity operators, and wildcards of unlimited complexity — something no single search engine allows you to do.

The filtering takes a few moments, so if you need the results fast switch to the "Express" mode. It skips all filtering and gives you all results as quickly as they come in.


Use the best information sources for the job

Google & Co. are great for general questions but often it's better to ask the right people who really know.

Choose your search engine of choice from the magnifying glass pop-up menu to directly search in developer resources, blogs, dictionaries, directories, discussion lists, legal or medical databases, news, or reference sites such as Wikipedia. Find Facebook profiles, tweets, or images without deviation.

Pre-fab search sets combine multiple search engines and parameters for common tasks like searching for Mac-related news, looking for new software, or doing an even more thorough search on the web.
