Charlotte leverages the power of the Web Services, Internet and Mac OS X Technologies to bring you a truly unique and fun experience searching the Web. You can customize the keyboard shortcuts to display the Charlotte search window and enable auto suggest feature. With “Live Snapshots” for results and a built-in Web Browser you don’t have to switch applications to view the results. You can select from a multitude of eye-pleasing animation effects like Page Curl, Ripple, Copy Machine, Flash, Dissolve etc when switching to different category results or switching from results view to browser view and vice versa.
   If you have used Spotlight on Mac OS X then you already know how to use Charlotte. Charlotte finds relevant content from the Web like links, articles, news stories, blog posts, images, movies, books and more. Charlotte supports both Keyword searching and Contextual searching.
    When you run Charlotte you will see a new green status item (Icons at the right like Date-Time, Volume, Airport etc) in your menu bar. Click on the new status item and enter keywords to find results instantly. Click the Search Icon in the Search field to see a menu with more options like Preferences, Previous searches, Updates and to Quit the application. Select “Show All Results” in the menu to see the detailed results window.

Plugin Architecture
 
Charlotte supports a plugin architecture so it is highly extensible.  Charlotte currently ships with a couple of plugins in six different categories. We plan to release more plugins both for existing categories and many exciting new categories in future updates.
 
You can customize the toolbar in the “Show all results” window to select the categories you want visible and also select the plugins you want in each category in the Application Preferences window.
 
Get pre-fetched results instantly. We believe that the first two pages (top 20) are the most useful and relevant links when searching the Web. Charlotte automatically fetches the top 20 results from all the plugins across all the categories simultaneous so you no longer have to hop multiple sites to get the results you need. Of course you can always increase the number of results per plugin in the application preferences.

The browser mode also has support for saving bookmarks in del.icio.us and viewing the saved ones.

The thumbshots and live previews provide additional context for the results so you can decide if you want to read more. The Info section of each result provides additional information.
 
Just for Developers
The developers category provides plugins to search for code snippets from different mailing lists.
It is always easier to learn new techniques by looking at sample code. When you get stuck and need to find more information about a specific API or issue, query the Koders service for help.
 
Settings per plugin
The Sites section of the application preferences window lets you set custom option for each plugin.
 Depending on the plugin you can set options like number of results, language, format, filters, country, language, region and etc.
