ChunkIt Toolbar

ChunkIt Toolbar

Have you ever been searching for something with a search engine and you just get too many results to handle? For example, today, I searched for “how to password protect a flash drive” and I got 401,000 results. I know one of those Web sites probably has what I’m looking for, but opening each one individually takes way too long!

So, because of that, I started looking for a better way to search. After awhile, I found a really cool add on for both Internet Explorer and Firefox. It’s called the ChunkIt Toolbar and here’s how it works.

First, install ChunkIt and you’ll see the toolbar come up after you restart your Web browser. The toolbar will be at the top of your screen.

After it’s installed, type what you’re looking for into the ChunkIt search box. Then just click on the Chunk button.

Now, here’s the best part! The ChunkIt Toolbar will perform your search with your favorite search engine. It will provide you with the regular search results on the right, but on the left, it will show you “chunks” of the actual information from the search results. Here’s a sample picture of what it looks like:

The words are kind of small in the picture, but you can see what I mean. The actual content from the search results appear on the left hand side. All you need to do is browse through the results until you find what you’re looking for. When you click on the “chunk” you want, you’ll be taken to it on the actual Web page it came from.

I think this add on is really cool and I know I’ll use it daily. If you ever find yourself buried in search results, the ChunkIt Toolbar can help you too!

You can download the ChunkIt Toolbar for Internet Explorer right here. Or, if you’re a Firefox user, download it here. Either way, enjoy!
