Inquisitor is a Safari add-on that adds Spotlight-like functions to its search field. As you type, Inquisitor offers appropriate websites and help to refine your search. It can even auto-complete your typing as if it somehow knows just what you’re after.
Inquisitor has been a favorite of Mac users for a while, but this release is a little different; it’s first major release since Inquisitor was acquired by Yahoo! It’s always a bit of an uneasy change when a company with an axe to grind or, in this case, search results to serve, takes over a product that had previously been without an agenda in favor of a particular search engine. The guys who code Inquisitor say they’ve been working hard to keep the essence of the project intact as they incorporate Yahoo technology like the new Yahoo! Search BOSS platform.
As a result of the new technological resources, this new release should show a marked performance boost and has a “slicked up” visual design as well as support for eight new languages: Japanese, Korean, Traditional Chinese, Spanish, Portuguese, French, Italian, and German.
Inquisitor is free.
