Free and Effective Online Search Engine Add-On

One of the most recognisable advantages of the Firefox browser is that add-ons are extremely easy to add and update. Although there are countless options available one popular choice is the search engine simply known as Bing. Many users will employ this alongside more traditional platforms such as Yahoo! and Google. Now this package can be downloaded and installed in only a matter of minutes. View full description

PROS

  • Similar to other search engines.
  • Can be downloaded as an add-on to Firefox in seconds.

CONS

  • Not as many search results (arguably) as larger platforms.
  • May block certain gaming and entertainment websites from listing within the search results.

One of the most recognisable advantages of the Firefox browser is that add-ons are extremely easy to add and update. Although there are countless options available one popular choice is the search engine simply known as Bing. Many users will employ this alongside more traditional platforms such as Yahoo! and Google. Now this package can be downloaded and installed in only a matter of minutes.

Trusted and Efficient

In terms of security it is good to point out that this Bing add-on is the only one officially approved by Firefox. This is important to avoid spyware and other potential problems with third-party providers. In essence this software functions much in the same way as other search engines. Immediately after the download a widget will be placed within the task bar. The user will also have the choice to set this engine as their homepage (although this can always be modified by adjusting Internet properties).

Adaptive Search Engine Technology

Bing employs an algorithm commonly known as adaptive technology. All specifics aside this basically records your most common searches and tailors future results around past history. When this is combined with a growing number of functions such as customisable skins and less memory allocation it becomes clear why some users enjoy this alternative.
