About this Add-on
DevSearch is an ideal search solution for developers working in almost any technology. It provides various options to search your queries in about 39 technologies and 195 frameworks in multiple popular websites along with easy copy paste option called 'Magic Copy' making web search easier and better than ever before with the least number of mouse clicks.
Why DevSearch ?
We spent a lot of time searching internet for solutions. That's what inspired us to think of finding ways and means for a much better and efficient search method. We asked around to get answers from folks working in different frameworks and technologies as to what would help developers improve even better. Consolidating all the feedback, we came up with a simple solution, DevSearch and that's how it was born.

1. Unlike normal Google search that returns 10 results, we have configured Google search to return 100 search results. ( i.e. Equivalent to traversing ten google pages )

Magic Copy helps you to automatically copy the text you select in the browser to the search box, thus reducing your Ctrl+C Ctrl+V effort
