About Results

WebMenu results are listed in an easy format. Each result listing normally include the Title, Description, URL and possibly with some additional options. See the screen snapshots below for further details:

If you are using a slower connection or in a rush or just like it simple; select the Lite-Version by clicking the Layout-Switch link on the top-left corner of the window. You can switch between Graphic and Lite Layouts using the same link.

The overall layout may look a little different for 'Ranked and Combined (Blended Search)' and 'Per-Engine (Split Search).
