Learn How To Hack

Xippee is a browser add-on that helps you conduct online searches more easily. You can use it to filter search results based on what words you'd like to see more or less of.
This is already possible if you know the right search operators. For instance, say you want to know more about "stars". You might get a page full of celebrity news, but you actually want to learn more about the big ball of gas so you'd change your query to "star -gossip".

The "-" tells the search engine to ignore any pages with the word "gossip" in it. Xippee lets you do this sort of filtering more easily by letting you double-click on words and deciding whether you want to see searches with more or less of that word in them with a single click of a plus or minus button.
Basically, Xippee makes it easier for non-tech savvy users to conduct Google and Yahoo searches. However, more experienced users probably won't want to add any more bulk to their browser.
