I was going to review this in depth because it's so good. However after e-mailing the author who showed no interest in a review of his product I changed my mind and have unashamedly reproduced part of the home page because 
every word is true and because I think you should know about it.

"I thought I had seen them all and used a few...iRover utterly stands alone as the most unique and well designed search 
utility for the web one could possibly use at ANY price. 

The ability to retrieve ALL the search results from a single search engine in a single pass rather than relying on 10 hits per engine and having to search many at once like others do to obtain quantity results is truly unique. 

Add the fact iRover can return formatted results with full descriptions just ices the cake. 
Make no mistake about it, iRover stands alone in it's technical feats. I am just sad that iRover had not come along

I rest my case.
