tyBit Unified Search is the fastest growing search engine on the Internet providing relevant, secure search to its users. tyBit has recently received the highly coveted "Five Cow Rating" from Tucows featured on its industry leading free software download page. This recognition of tyBit as one of the best free software applications, vaults tyBit into the elite company of search industry leaders in spite of its short history on the market and previously limited availability to end users.

Tucows is the largest wholesale domain name registrar and a leading provider of Internet services to Web hosting companies and Internet service providers (ISPs). Tucows scores software available for download based on: usability, help documentation and support, program enhancements and the independent evaluation based on their reviewers overall impression. tyBit received high scores for install of the download toolbar, functionality, the program interface and program enhancements.

According to the PEW Internet & American Life Research Project, "the percentage of internet users who use search engines on a typical day has been steadily rising from about one-third of all users in 2002, to a new high of just under one-half (49%) in 2008. With this increase, the number of those using a search engine on a typical day is pulling ever closer to the 60% of internet users who use email, making search engines arguably the internet's all-time killer app, on a typical day".

It lets users search the Web quickly by instantly submitting your search query to multiple search engines and online directories.

According to the 2008 TMP Directional Marketing study, "the first sources used to find product and service information are Search Engines (31%), Print Yellow Pages or White Pages (30%), Internet Yellow Pages Sites (19%) and Local Search Sites (11%). This represents a change from the 2007 study, which ranked Print Yellow Pages first (33%), followed by Search Engines (30%) .
