Minimal SearchJump on Google Chrome

May 02 2010 Published by under SearchJump

I noticed that the icons for search jump had different sizes when I loaded it in Google Chrome.


When I investigated the issue, I found the icons had 16×16, 32×32, 64×64 image sizes embedded. Chrome happened to load the larger image sizes.


The final trick was to get Chrome to reload it. I tried restarting the browser and clearing the cache. It finally worked when I uninstalled it from the extensions menu and reinstalled it from the web site.


Minimal SearchJump is available for Chrome, Firefox, and Opera.

SearchJump Updated with Embedded Favicons

Mar 28 2010 Published by under SearchJump

Now you will notice that the icons load a lot faster and all at the same time if you are using either the minimal version or the plain version.

Note: the new version has a new namespace, so the old version must be uninstalled manually from Greasemonkey

As far as searchme goes, it now redirects to google. It did a better job of showing search result previews than GooglePreview.

Minimal SearchJump

Jul 01 2009 Published by under Firefox,SearchJump

If you are a fan of Google Docks (available in Chinese among other languages) or Windows Hoax (has been available in Beta or RC), then you might want to might want to install the MinSJ script, meaning Minimal Script Junkie. I actually thought it stood for Minimu Jumps for Searching, whatever.

SearchJump Search Engines Highlights

Jun 28 2009 Published by under SearchJump

  • Bing uses technology from Powerset to display “related searches” and groups search results into categories such as product reviews, movie listings, weather, travel, and stock prices, among other new features.
  • Until computers are more powerful than human brains, people will be able to sell their idle brains to the companies and people who need the special processing power that they alone possess through marketplaces like ChaCha, a service where you can ask a question and get it answered in 3 minutes for free.
  • Clusty searches the results of other search engines and indexes, applies AI to pick out the major themes found within the results for each search, and organizes them into folders.
  • Deepdyve is a search engine designed by Human Genome Project scientists that uses DNA matching algorithms on search terms to search 99 percent of the web, while most search engines only crawl 1 percent.
  • Instead of looking up basic encyclopedic information, you can just go to WolframAlpha instead, where you will get a direct answer to your question, as well as a nicely presented set of graphs and other info.
  • Other search engines are put there to look nice (or just look nice)
