A few months back we announced the acquisition of Inquisitor software, which helped to extend our query suggestion features, similar to Yahoo!’s Search Assist, to the Mac community. We’ve been quietly working on enhancements since, and today we’re rolling out a new look, a few performance improvements and we’re also going global.

To start with we tapped into the Yahoo! Search infrastructure, using the recently announced Yahoo! Search BOSS, our open search web services platform, in order to speed up the search results delivered in Inquisitor. You should notice a significant improvement in the speed of your query results in Yahoo! Search. We also gave Inquisitor a little facelift with a new, refined, yet simple home page ( and a cleaner user interface of the Inquisitor client.


You can now also utilize Inquisitor in different languages, eight to be exact, including Japanese, Korean, Traditional Chinese, Spanish, Portuguese, French, Italian, and German.

Great design will continue to be a pillar of Inquisitor. We hope you enjoy these changes, and as always, let us know what you think in the comments below.
