What can you use the app for?

VerticalSet gives website developers, content providers and internet users the capability of narrowing a web search to a more specific target.

VerticalSet offers extensions that are ready to install such as GRE word, Urban Dictionary, Blekko Slashtag Sear..., QWiki, Stackoverflow Search and DDG Goodies as well as Calculator, Image Search, Google News, Wikipedia Search, Twitter Search, IP2location.
