From the makers of Localscope, the popular location browser app for the iPhone, comes Phlo for the Mac, a tool for searching your favorite websites.
With a few keystrokes, it lets you jump right to the search results for anything that you need to lookup on a site of your choice. Phlo also lets you customize preferred sites or search engines from which to search.
Phlo can be summoned with a configurable global hotkey from anywhere on the Mac. To search, a user has to type the search phrase and then hit Tab to choose the website that he'd like to search in. Phlo filters the websites and search engines as the user types and automatically bubbles up the most used sites. For example, a user can type "The Hobbit" and then choose the site "IMDb" to search from and the results will be displayed on their default web browser.
Phlo requires Mac OS X 10.8 or later. It's available for US$3.99 exclusively on the Mac App Store in the Productivity category (http://tinyurl.com/cq5lcdu).
