A useful search tool, though it could do with an easier way to switch engines

4Eyes Review

by on December 2, 2011

Safari’s search box isn’t always the best way to get the results you want. You can change the default provider, but you can’t add other search engines.

4Eyes enables you to perform fast searches in dozens of engines and its main selling point is the keyboard-driven interface, which relies on abbreviations to help you search faster.

For example, type ‘a Steve Jobs’ and it will search Amazon, type ‘del’ instead of ‘a’ and it will search Delicious for the same term. The commands are shown on the main screen, so you don’t have to learn them, but you’ll memorise the most useful ones. It’s not just web engines, either; you can search the App Store, email and find out the time or weather for any location.

It’s fast, has a favourite searches list and a clean interface, but lacks a handy way to skip to another engine without deleting the prefixed abbreviation first.
