  • (2020-03-01) m: Fantastic extension - thank you so much! Currently the default search is supposed to be the first item on the list, but this doesn't work when the first item on the list is a group [of search engines]. If it isn't too much trouble, would you mind adjusting this feature to accommodate groups as the default search? Thanks!
  • (2019-12-26) Complex Carbivorous: To make sure you don't lose your search engines, use the "Export Engines" in the "Manage Engines" and save the text file for backup.
  • (2019-12-22) Ted E.: Excellent extension. I can't live without it! Would you be able to add an option to search multiple engines at the same time and open them in their own tabs? Maybe add a checkbox to select the desired engines. If so, I'd gladly give you more stars once I figure out how. LOL
  • (2019-02-10) N. Elizabeth Sparks: I had to give three stars as until last week it was AWESOME. It's gone from completely reliable, to incredibly annoying. For some reason, I click to search and WAIT abnormally long, so perhaps it's myself I'm more annoyed with. My pc was down temporarily, so found myself double clicking, hitting enter etc... Ugh. Alright, not sure what happened as I don't see any other adverse reviews, but hoping it can be fixed or I'll have to figure something else out. My laptop treats Chrome like the enemy as it wants me to use pre-installed Bing etc... so couldn't use the existing search box and was thrilled to find your handiwork. I've never written a review for an extension, rarely use them, but... Thanks in advance for the fix! ~Elizabeth
  • (2018-12-20) Will Gao: 为什么不更新了??按tab跳到要用的搜索后,在按回车不起作用。
  • (2018-12-18) worsedaze: Very Useful!!! Only thing I would improve is when searching through Hotkey(Ctrl+Q) + Enter make it search in the same tab. I use it at work its excellent
  • (2018-11-23) James Davis: Unlike the reviewer below, I've had no problems with it. Tried many search extensions and this is the best search method I've found. Allows you to use any search engines rather than confining you to certain ones. Easy to add hard to add search using the "searchcenter" keyword.
  • (2018-09-06) Great and easy to use !
  • (2018-07-30) mark audacity romberg: Can't reliably get Search Center window to pop up. Sometimes it opens after I've typed something in the Omnibox, sometimes not, sometimes on empty new tabs, sometimes not.
  • (2018-06-24) root shadow: kinda slow, pops after over 1s
  • (2017-12-24) Ruslan Baleshta: A great extension. It would be very good to add an option to have a possibility to change the order of search engines in options → manage engines to improve it yet. Thank you very much.
  • (2017-09-30) Lor Pal: Muy muy bueno, como detecta las paginas y me encanto poder editar los motores de búsqueda. El mejor hasta ahora. El único problema es que a veces tarda en aparecer y no se borra el contenido en la caja de búsqueda.
  • (2017-07-05) IceLancer SR: Its not using my search engines already defined in chrome and imported from firefox i do not want to make a lot of new engines all over again
  • (2017-04-16) Mohammad Ridwan: Please add the ability to add more than 30 engines!! Not enough!
  • (2017-03-27) Ahmed Samy: very useful and very easy,Please add an option that u can search group of engines in the same tabs instead of opening in new tabs would be great, thanks.
  • (2017-02-16) Katarina Zhou: Very useful. And I hope I can add and manage more engines with Search Center.
  • (2016-09-25) FRed IntheMiX: very useful, I hope the author will continue to maintain it
  • (2016-07-29) Best Giveaways Free Bonuses: The best extension for searching anything 5 STARS
  • (2016-05-14) Aleksander Paruzel: Looks very nice, but doesn't work correctly on Vivaldi. I can't delete any search engine, sadly.
  • (2016-02-05) Christopher Mischler: On its own, it's nice to be able to select different search engines quickly; but the real usefulness is in its "folders" option. You can add multiple search engines to a "folder" and when you search/click that folder, it'll open a tab for each of the engines. This is *super* helpful when I'm doing product research & need to open 3-4 different sites every time I want to look at a product details or price.
  • (2016-01-26) David W. Levingston: I love this, thank you
  • (2015-11-15) Richard Strawn: Okay this is a great idea!!
  • (2015-11-13) jerry zhang: wonderfull project! we really appreciate your work! My suggestion is that ,Could if the key word will be kept in a period of time. Otherwise,we cannot,use the bar with the older "key word",continuously. Meanwhile,we dont need the key -word one-day later. thx for your reading!
  • (2015-10-29) Daniel Yin: great addon with everything that needed, thank u!
  • (2015-10-12) Василий Данилов: Добавьте синхронизацию между разными компьютерами.
