Tired of JUST using GOOGLE all the time? Try Dogpile's new widget!

I know, sometimes I get into the habit of ONLY using GOOGLE then thinking, well, if I can't find it in Google, then it's not on the web. I really need to get out of this habit so I was really happy when I found out that Dogpile (which I have not used in forever) now has a desktop widget! Downloading now and I'll give it the old try... hope it works nicely!

Dogpile.com Releases a Searcher's Best Friend, a Desktop Widget

Dogpile.com has released a desktop search widget. The widget features a single-search bar, which blends results from Google, Yahoo, MSN, and Ask.com. Dogpile's SearchSpy, which features searches conducted all over the world, is also included on the widget.

But this isn't your average search widget. Dogpile's mascot, Arfie, is featured on the widget and you can pet him and play fetch with him. Awww!

“Offering a little fun with your search is one critical element our team is focused on as we continue to improve Dogpile.com,” said Mark Whidby, director, search product management of InfoSpace, Inc. “Our users have always loved Arfie, and now we’re giving them a way to take him home with them. This widget is the first of many new engaging and useful tools we hope to launch in the coming months. A top priority as we continue to upgrade Dogpile.com is to engage and entertain our users while providing a superior search experience.”

To download the Dogpile widget (and Arfie!), visit www.dogpilewidgetdownload.com.
