A 21 year-old undergraduate from Singapore launched TurboScout.com, a new search tool that helps Internet users to access and compare original results from over 90 search engines across 7 categories on a single web page, removing the hassle of retyping keywords into different search engines.

1. TurboScout.com Makes Web Searching 20 Times Faster

Comparing results from different search engines like Google, Yahoo, MSN Search, and Ask Jeeves is a common practice for many users. This is because different engines use different ranking methods and thus no single engine can give users exactly what they’re looking for.

That’s where TurboScout.com comes in handy Says William Chee, founder of TurboScout.com. Grown out of the frustration of typing and retyping keywords into different search engines, I decided to create an online search tool to get rid of these hassles and make such searching 20 times faster.

Users who visit http://www.turboscout.com only need to enter keywords once, and getting original results from different search engines is as simple as clicking the engine’s name. No more retyping keywords into different search engines.

Search engine marketing firms also find TurboScout.com an invaluable tool for search engine optimization and finding out the rankings of their clients’ web sites in different engines.

Users who set their browser home page to their favorite site can even customize TurboScout.com to load together with their favorite web site. This way, users can have all the benefits of TurboScout.com and access to their favorite site at the same time.

In addition to web page search, TurboScout.com also helps users to find images, search encyclopedias, check out latest news, look for interesting blogs, find songs and videos, and even compare prices from major online retailers and auction sites.

With a growing number of users who search online, TurboScout.com is slated to become the preferred time-saving search tool for many across the globe.

2. Access 90 Search Engines’ Results With Firefox’s Search Box

TurboScout.com launches a Firefox extension which empowers over 27 million Firefox users to access original results from more than 90 search engines with just a click.

According to Nielsen//NetRatings, majority of Internet searchers use multiple search engines to compare results from search engines like Google, Yahoo, MSN Search and Ask Jeeves. Different search engines use different ranking methods and thus no single search engine can give users exactly what they’re looking for.

Users who visit http://www.turboscout.com only need to enter keywords once. Getting original results from different search engines is as simple as clicking on the engine’s name. No more retyping of URLs and keywords into different search engines.

To further simplify the searching process and enhance TurboScout.com’s usability, a Firefox extension has been developed. This allows Firefox users to customize the browser’s in-built search box to search using TurboScout.com, said William Chee, founder of TurboScout.com. Users can add this extension with just a click from http://www.turboscout.com/firefox, no download or installation is needed.

TurboScout.com saved my time and made searching a breeze, said Ben M. Bois, the extension’s developer and founder of hooboo.com. This prompted me to develop the extension to help fellow Firefox users around the world.

Over 27 million Firefox users can now harness TurboScout.com benefits by adding the extension to their Firefox’s search box with just a click, Ben added.

By incorporating TurboScout.com’s capability with the convenience of searching with Firefox’s in-built search box, Firefox users will be able to access original search results of multiple search engines right from their browser’s tool bar.
