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

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

Just click DEVONagent Lite'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 DEVONagent Lite opens the search results in your default browser.


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.
