Blekko Search

Blekko search engine is a legitimate website that aims to provide spam-free search. It has quite a few browser extensions to offer for Internet users and Blekko Search bar is one of them. Blekko Search is different from other major search engines in a way that it introduces slash tags into search and a lot of social features. The search engine can be accessed at blekko.com and from there the user can find and download Blekko Search toolbar and other browser plugins. Blekko Search bar is also available at Mozilla add-ons website for Mozilla Firefox users.

Despite the fact that some of the users claim that Blekko Search change their default home pages without their permission, browser add-ons for this search engine usually requires enabling and that is done by the user himself. Unless, of course, you download Blekko Search bundled with other freeware applications you find online, and go through the installation process negligently.
