Releases a Searcher’s Best Friend, a Desktop Widget has released a desktop search widget. The widget features a single-search bar, which blends results from Google, Yahoo, MSN, and Dogpile’s SearchSpy, which features searches conducted all over the world, is also included on the widget.

But this isn’t your average search widget. Dogpile’s mascot, Arfie, is featured on the widget and you can pet him and play fetch with him. Awww!

“Offering a little fun with your search is one critical element our team is focused on as we continue to improve,” said Mark Whidby, director, search product management of InfoSpace, Inc. “Our users have always loved Arfie, and now we’re giving them a way to take him home with them. This widget is the first of many new engaging and useful tools we hope to launch in the coming months. A top priority as we continue to upgrade is to engage and entertain our users while providing a superior search experience.”
