Pin your special website combo to Start and escape from your mundane search routine! [+] SURF THE INTERNET IN STEREO When you open your web browser and try to find something on the Internet, you must choose "ONE" search engine. Even if you know there are many search engines, you have to start with just one... Why not start your search with "TWO" search engines? More than one, not too many; just enough to comfortably be displayed concurrently on tablets and typical PC monitors. Twofoo automatically opens two search results from two different search engines side by side in their original format. You can in fact open any two websites simultaneously in Twofoo. [+] AUTO RESEARCH When you tap and open a link while browsing a regular website, Twofoo automatically analyzes its content and opens a search page on the other side. [=] GET TWOFOO! Twofoo is not a search engine; it's a web browser with two harmonic browsing panels. Two webpages bounce back and forth between those two browsing panels and help you find better answers! ==================== Usage Tips ==================== More information is available at http://twofoo.com. [*] When you enter a web link address starting "http://", "https://" or "twofoo://" in search-box instead of keywords, Twofoo opens the address in its left browsing panel and initiates auto research. [*] Empty search query opens the homepage of the each website instead of its search result. [*] If you have selected text when choosing "Research" menu, Twofoo opens a search page using that selected text as keywords. This should be handy when you want to find a meaning of a word or phrase while reading an article. [*] Tapping the address bar opens the currently displayed webpage in Internet Explorer, and enables "website launch mode". In this mode, when you tap a hyperlink, it'll always be opened in Internet Explorer. Tapping the address bar again ends this mode. [*] Twofoo may have problems displaying Flash or other ActiveX based content. In such case, tap the address bar and open the webpage in Internet Explorer. [*] Tapping the left or right side of the bottom blue bar starts single view mode. [*] When you need to go back to the main search-box page while browsing websites, open the bottom app bar and tap the first logo button. In order to return to the web browsers, try opening the bottom app bar again. [*] If you want to create a search pair or a website entry from currently displayed webpages in Twofoo, use Windows Share charm and select Twofoo itself. [*] Search pair entries with no website address information are treated as item separators. [*] Twofoo natively supports WordPress.ORG open-source blogging system (it should also work with free accounts from WordPress.COM).
