Overview

Handily use/switch any one/multiple search engines. More than GET/POST sender, with special tech. Open souce on Github

Friendly to novices, satisfying to experts. For daily, entertainment & work. 🌟 Besides what any multi-engine web search tool can do (GET/POST, user custom engines, built-in Google,DuckDuckGo,Youtube,eBay,Github etc) , it also can ✨: - 🖋️ Single-line or multi-line text - ⌨️ Every search step can be done by just keyboard, without mouse. It's UI has built-in Vimium-like feature. Keys can quickly call different search engines - 🖥️ Desktop (browser extension / web app) and mobile (web app) - 🔎 Even works with websites that don't provide GET/POST interface (so-called In-page-Ajax-render websites) - 🔎 Do many operations at once by one button - 💪 User JSON programatical advanced customization (GUI easy editing also). Great flexibility in engine data & search method and so on... Go on for readme Disclaimer: This is an open-source user-customizable third-party tool. We are not employee or working with those search engines. ### Basic - 🔎 Use any search engines or inquery websites (multiple simultaneously) from one page. Any websites that support GET/POST request. > E.g: Google, DuckDuckGo, Youtube, eBay, Github etc. Customizable. 60+ built-in. - 🔎 User adding custom-defined search engine (syncronizable in extension) ### More - 🖋️ Single-line or multi-line text edit/input and sending > Useful when for e.g. you want to have article paragraphs translated - 🗂️ Search engines categorization - 📋 Save, reuse and manage your input history (only saved locally in the browser localStorage) - 🖱️ Quickly use user selected text on webpage as search term ( context menu) > - Not in Firefox incognito mode - ⌨️ Keyboard shortcut ( you may need to change ) - Open popup. Firefox: `Ctrl+Alt+S` Chrome & others:`Ctrl+Shift+S` - Set selected text as search term and open popup. Firefox: `Ctrl+Alt+D` Chrome & others:`Ctrl+Shift+D` > change on Chrome: `chrome://extensions/shortcuts` - 🖥️ UI adapted multiply: Desktop (browser extension or web app) and mobile (web app only). Extention can show UI in: toolbar button popup UI, standalond tab, or sidebar (browser native) ### Even more: What's special about it - 🔎 Even works with those websites that don't provide GET/POST interface to public (so-called In-page-Ajax-render websites) - 🔎 Do many operations at once by one button - ✨ Good-looking, powerful and lightweight - 💪 Uses JSON as unified search engines database (both built-in and user-defined). Has strong flexibility & extensibility in engine data: - 🔲 Multiple buttons for one engine: more than one operations for one engine. (Buttons inherit data from engine. Some key-value data ​​in button can override the ones in engine name) - 📞 Cross-engine use: Call another engine (or it's certain button action) to do the action - 🔏 String-formatting or character-replacing user's input, according to engine's need. And, charset specifying. - 🔎 Combining above two to search websites that don't support search ### Safety & Privacy - 🛡️ Pure client-side tool functions fully. No necessary server. No collecting user's input or ad analyzing. - 🛡️ Browser extension does not inject anything to web sites. (except when using In-page-Ajax-render engine) ## How to edit search engines Ordinary users who only use basic features can directly use our online gui engine-editing tool (Read more at source code page: https://github.com/garywill/BigSearch )

cool extension. but I could not find a way to open search results for a given term in all the engines in multiple tabs like the instant multi searh extension does. For example I want to create 20 custom searches under user defined engines and want to open 20 tabs instantly. Any way to do this?

Hi there! No Icons. No multiple links are open in one click. How can I select 5 or 7 links and open them at one time??? No Russian language. No folders and SubFolders (infinity nesting). The visual design sucks 🤢🤮 Can't get how to use it for this site? >>> https://andisearch.com The product is still raw. Right now I'm using Trufflepiggy and Selection Search. Take care 🖤
