Yahoo acquires Inquisitor, a Safari Browser Plug-in

Yahoo acquires Inquisitor, a Safari Browser Plug-in.  Safari is the default browser on MACs but you can download it for PC too.

I find that Safari is actually a pretty good browser, a lot better than IE7.  I like how the text boxes show up differently for the same site you load on Firefox.

It looks like Yahoo is targetting Mac users (of course) through this acquisition.

Time will tell whether this plug-in will help Yahoo to gain a good share of Mac users.  If that happens, Google might come up with something similar soon, if they are not working on it already…

Download it here to try it.

Inquisitor 3, a search technology that auto-completes queries and delivers results right in Safari Web browser, is similar to Yahoo!’s existing Search Assist technology. Simply type in your query and websites will appear immediately, as well as suggestions for refining your search. Just as with Search Assist, the goal with Inquisitor is to help users find exactly the site they’re looking for as quickly as possible.
