Definitely still room for improvement in terms of design, but the functionality is amazing. It saves me a lot of time going back and forth between tabs.

Great potential, but not quite there...yet! It needs a bit of work. As of right now, only one page of results means SEO is key on the sites you are looking for. I don't like the fact that I can only see one YouTube video and can't scroll beyond that. I would also like to see the addition of Wikipedia, CC image search, or customize them like you can with the browser search bar. I also would like to see the ability to use "copy link address" context menu when I find what I am searching for. This would be great for bloggers or social media folks who need to find a quick reference link that they want to link to from their post. Again, really great potential, and I look forward to future development.

Love it. Two recommendations though, 1: More options in the initial window. 2: I think the popup window should be the default. You can move it to where you you want without going into popup mode and then having two search windows which isn't ideal if you're trying to read and research at the same time. Otherwise, great work, many thanks!
