Inquisitor Instant Search

Category: LiveSearch, Showcase

We loved Google Suggest, the Ajax mother compared to Google Maps, the father.

Then we saw Yahoo! Instant Search, which was ok….

But now we have the best of both worlds, with a sleek Son of Search: Inquistor Instant Search.

It gives you both “are you looking for” info a la Google, and search results a la Yahoo…. but for each search!


It looks like Apple designed this puppy doesn’t it? :)

When functionality is a given, beauty is the next level.

I for one welcome the beautiful web!

Dave steals yet again.

In inquisitor ajax, the search results are not provided by Google, they are powered by MSN Search.

Want proof? Check out and see what you see. This seems to also be against Microsoft’s policies on their experimental RSS feeds, as they state “please don’t recreate our search engine with them” on their weblog ( — of course, this last part doesn’t bother me much).

Yet more examples of Dave’s flagrant lies and deceit. He states this information absolutely NOWHERE on his site, nor does he state that he uses Google suggest to power the other results. This is likely against Google’s notoriously strict API license as well.

Claude, do you seriously have no life other than posting trash like this all over the web? You don’t even modify the posts, just copy and paste to get your message across. Know what? I don’t use the web search anyway since I have the toolbar in Safari. Nice try though, but really, no one cares.
