Better Search Windows 8 App to Search Google, Yahoo, Bing and Ask

Better Search Windows 8 app lets you search multiple search-engines simultaneously in a very convenient manner. The advantage of this Windows 8 search application is that it allows you to save a lot of precious times. At present the app supports four search engines; Google Yahoo, Bing, and Ask. The queries made by you are sent to all four search engines and their independent search results are presented to you.

I understand that Google is a very capable Search engine and delivers best search results in a quick and effective manner. Still! there are many scenarios where you might require taking advantage of combined search. Better Search Windows 8 app comes handy in such situations.

Have a look on the procedure stated below.

  • The next thing will be to type your query in the textbox and press ‘Enter’ button. On doing so your query will be processed by multiple search and displayed in their respective frames. better-search-app-for-simultaneous-search
  • Now browse fetched result on your favorite search engine. If not satisfied then scroll the horizontal scroll-bar to see results from other search engines.

Pros & Cons:

The one thing that I like about the app is that the results open in same window and you are not redirected to your default browser. The problem with Better Search Windows 8 App is that you cannot go back after clicking on links. This inability of Better Search engine is major disappointment for users.
