TigerLogic unveils ChunkIt! web search tool

ChunkIt web search tool

TigerLogic has unveiled ChunkIt!, a tool for searching "behind the links" in Google searches or on any other web page. The application automatically scans the links on a page, and fetches information from them that might be valuable to filtering by relevance, without actually navigating to each site. When shopping sites are browsed, keywords are highlighted in item descriptions; research sites -- including LexisNexis, JSTOR, ScienceDirect and Wikipedia -- can all be previewed through the software.

The location of specific topics on news sites can be narrowed down, and blogs can be sorted for relevant subjects. Apartment and sale listings are pulled from sites such as Craigslist, and investors can use the plug-in as a tool to hunt through SEC filings. ChunkIt! is available as a free plug-in for Internet Explorer 6.0 or Firefox 2.0 or later on Mac or Windows.
