Between this (Surf Canyon) and the DeeperWeb add-on I can find incredible search results.
Secure https connection to the site is missing...
This is a great add-on for getting results you never could have discovered on your own. It saves time and gets really great results. Job well done!
Excellent. Pulls up pertinent hits from remote pages on search engine.
Don't use this software. The search results were no better than Google. Also, the program does not deinstall properly, the embedded page search still shows up as Surf Canyon even when the software is deinstalled!

Very nicely done. I'm pleasantly surprised by the relevant results I get when I go back to the search resuls.
Really slows down searches and seems to show less relevant results. Plain Google searches were faster and usually showed more relevant results.
There is no support for this Add On. I Disabled it, then Uninstalled it but it is still there. I should have known with only three reviews something was wrong. This is the third problematic Add On FF has available. I wish they would be more careful.

I have been unhappy with SC because it
keeps upgrading my Google page while I am trying to read it, so I lose my place.
I would like to remove it, but don't know how.

The method in which the Search Engine automatically "drills down" by Re-Ranking alternative results (as the developer calls it) within what I would call cascading "sub-lists" for each web page listed as each link is selected is very effective and unique way of obtaining desired results. The user can also optionally continue to "drill down" by clicking on the "target" for each selection to get the same "sub-list". This effective method of "drilling down" your search with cascading levels of "sub-lists" as you make your selections will often cull results that would otherwise typically be many pages down on the search results list. I have found that just two levels of "sub-lists" can very often find results that would have often been 20-30 pages down the list but because of the method of "targeting" results the pertinent web pages will be on the very first page nestled within the cascaded levels of "sub-lists" provided. It is nice to know that when web pages are selected they will open in a new window the way all search engines should but many actually do not unfortunately thus in this case retaining the original search results to more easily return to view other results. I have found the search elapsed time to be very fast and the "target" searches that continue to "drill down" to further detail even faster. To offer a perspective as to how fast, searching the identical thing, I found Surf Canyon each time to be at least twice as fast as Google and as you would expect the manner in which Surf Canyon "drills down" produces more pertinent results in much less time as well. I recommend Surf Canyon with a 5-star rating.
Works great! Integrates into the Firefox SearchBar as advertised, with query suggestions and top results. Haven’t seen top results in the SearchBar before, which is a very cool feature. The re-ranking stuff on the Surf Canyon search site is also excellent.
