As a Google user, there are times when I don’t find things I am looking for so I have to switch to Yahoo or Bing in another tab and search for it. This process might be annoying for some people as it may show duplicate entries as well which you already checked. To solve this problem, you should check out an add-on known as Bounce.

manage search engines

Bounce is a nifty extension for Mozilla Firefox which allows users to manage and compare search results from different search engines. When you search for a specific keyword, the extension displays additional search engine icons at the bottom of the page. Clicking on any of them will display the entries from that search engine, hiding the duplicate ones. If you want, you can even display the duplicate entries as well from the options provided. The extension even adds a toolbar in Firefox which display different search engine icons as well.

One thing to note here is that the icons of search engines are only displayed when you search using Google or Bing.

Features

  • Simple and easy to use
  • Manage and compare different search results
  • Hides duplicate search results
  • Works with Google and Bing only

    Although it's a site and not an extension, SCOUR will search multiple engines (and not just Google and Bing). It also has some kind of social component for those that are interested.
