What in the world is FrogFind?
A quick FAQ on an unconventional search engine
Who made FrogFind?
How does FrogFind work?
The search functionality of FrogFind is basically a custom wrapper for DuckDuckGo search, converting the results to extremely basic HTML that old browsers can read. When clicking through to pages from search results, those pages are processed through a PHP port of Mozilla's Readability, which is what powers Firefox's reader mode. I then further strip down the results to be as basic HTML as possible.
What machines do you test FrogFind on?
I designed FrogFind with classic Macs in mind, to make sure it looks good in 1 bit color with a 512x384 resolution. Most of my testing has been on Netscape 1.1N and 2.0.2, as well as a few 68k Mac versions of iCab. FrogFind should also work great on any text-based web browser!
