Inquisitor X: Insta-search

Inquisitor X is a nifty little web app which provides nearly instant searches of major search engines while you type.

Think of it as Spotlight but for the web. No, better yet, don’t, because Spotlight is fairly annoying…

Anyhow, it’s a nifty bit of code. I just wish that clicked links opened in the main window as in a normal search engine rather than in a frame. As it is, if you type or delete a single character in the search field, you lose whatever page you were looking at! Oops!

Maybe I’d be happier using Inquisitor as a plug-in for Safari or Camino.
