Ever notice that a lot of other browsers don’t have the switch-search-engine function in their search bar, like Firefox does? Chrome, as Google’s flagship web browser, is naturally more inclined toward googling
than surfing per se, for example, but Firefox tends to not think that way. Using the search bar next to the URL bar, you can quickly switch to a different engine, from Twitter to Bing and everything in between. Scroll Search Engines
, an extension for Firefox, makes this even more convenient. Now you don’t have to click the down-arrow and select a search engine to go with; simply hover your cursor over the bar, and use the mouse wheel to scroll through the available option till you have the one you want.

Smarter Search comes with an autocomplete feature that displays a list of websites in a drop-down menu. Select an option from the list and hit Enter to instantly open results for your query in a new tab.

Often, when we are researching a topic, we need to look up the same search term on multiple search engines. Opening individual search engines and typing the search term repeatedly can be a cumbersome task. Drag & Drop Search
, a Chrome extension, is an intuitive and innovative approach to browse and search the web. The extension makes use of the drag & drop feature, so we can search the web quicker with the help of multiple search engines. Drag & Drop search also saves you from typing. All you need to do is highlight text and drag it, and as you do this, a large transparent grid appears on top of the webpage you are viewing. The grid comes with popular search engines, such as Google, Bing, YouTube, Wikipedia, as well as social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter, Delicious and more.
Google is without doubt the best search engine there is but that doesn't mean bing and Yahoo can be discarded completely. For those who prefer being thorough, Multi Search
, a Chrome extension, lets you search for keywords on multiple search engines via the right-click context menu and the Omnibar. It comes with an extensive list of search engines, which allows you to search for keywords with only a click or two, and you can easily customize the context menu by adding your desired search engines.

All In One Search Bar
is a Firefox extension which brings quick searching ability across famous search engines and websites by choosing a category. For example, if you wish to search for a video, you can choose the video category with the Google search option and get results only for videos related to the searched term. Search can be performed on Google, Bing, Facebook, Flickr, Ask, PhotoBucket, Wikipedia, Yahoo, YouTube, MetaCafe, BeeMP3, SongsLover, Wordpress, etc. This can save a lot of time for searching through specific search engines with defined categories.
Another good part is that the search page can open in a new tab which provides the utility of performing quick searches from the toolbar instead of having to visit the specific website. It is also better than the available search bar in Firefox since it has more refining options such as search by video, image, web, news, etc (depending upon the selected search engine). The available criteria are refined according to the selected search engines. For example, if you were to select Facebook, you will be able to refine the search by applications, pages, profiles, groups, events, posts by friends, etc. Whereas, Google search will allow you to search by videos, images, web and news.
