FERRET OUT HIDDEN INFO ON THE WEB

© 1999 Virginia Lawrence, Ph.D.

Aren't we all getting a bit tired of the search engines? Pages full of graphics and ads take forever to come up. Then the search is successful, and we have 17,253 items! It can take 20 minutes to rummage through the first 20 sites listed, and sometimes we still have no helpful information. What to do?

WebFerret to the rescue. WebFerret is a searching program for your PC computer. WebFerret takes your list of keywords or exact phrase and searches through the major online search engines, but WebFerret brings you only the results, not those slow search engine pages. WebFerret Displays a list of the researched site pages. Place a cursor over the title of an interesting page, and you see a short description of each page. Double click on the title, and WebFerret brings up your browser so that you can see the full site page online. You'll be amazed at the time you'll save.

Go immediately to http://www.ferretsoft.com/netferret/download.htm.

Scroll down to WebFerret Freeware. Click on the link to download the file. After downloading, double-click on the file to start the installation wizard. Follow the wizard until the installation is complete.

Important: Unless you are sure that your require a proxy, do NOT select the proxy option. If you currently use e-mail and you are browsing the Internet, you should not have to worry about the proxy.
