Yahoo Acquires Mac-Based Search Software

Yahoo is ready to make searching simpler for Mac users.

The company has just announced it’s acquired Inquisitor, a plug-in for the Safari browser that puts some extra punch into the program.

The software is capable of auto-completing queries and showing results right inside the Safari window, much like the Google Toolbar for IE and Firefox. The features are also similar to Yahoo’s own non-browser-integrated Search Assist utility.

Inquisitor has no relation to The Inquisitr, in case this acquisition raised any inquiries.
