Search annoyances

by laynelab / March 16, 2017 11:16 AM PDT

Maybe instead of playing the annoying video on virtually every page, you should concentrate in improving your search engine. For example, when I search for category "Browsers", it shows multiple pages and most the time the very same program shows up on different pages. One would think that an effective search would only unique programs and not repeat that program on multiple pages!

Since this appears to be a issue, this one remains.

We appreciate your feedback, and apologize for any inconvenience here. We have shared your comments with the appropriate site managers for review.

You may find it helpful, after searching, to apply one of the filters from the column on the left side of the page, such as operating system, although there may still be multiple versions of a browser in the results list -- for instance, Firefox has a portable version, a 64-bit version, and so on.

However, we are always striving to improve users' experience, and delivering better search results is a big part of that. We hope you will find future changes to the site and service more user friendly.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
