Search Refinements powered by Surf Canyon
This is a new feature introduced in FlashGot 22.214.171.124: thanks to Surf Canyon's real-time search personalizations, we can enrich your search results on Google, Bing, Yahoo and Craigslist with relevant refinements related to downloadable files and media.
Surf Canyon's patented technology is appreciated by users of their own addon, and by specialized reviewers like the Walt Mossberg column. When they offered to bring a customized version of their service to FlashGot users, we examined their functionality and their attitude to privacy, and we've been pleased by both, finding that they can provide value to our user base.
Of course, this feature is entirely optional. You can turn it off with the little [x] next to the refinements, and turn it back on with the "Show Search Refinements" checkbox in the advanced options tab.
We're very interested in your feedback: especially if you see a bug or a conflict with another extension, please let us know.
Feb 17 2010 Update
Since this feature, after one week of pilot testing, has not being received by some of our users as well as we expected, we decided to remove it.
Thank you for your feedback.
