FrogFind is a unique and free search engine specially built for vintage computer systems. It has been developed by Sean with a basic motive of getting old and classic personal computers online to search and query for information.
FrogFind is a workable solution in this regard. It basically uses a custom wrapper for the search engine DuckDuckGo and converts the search results to very basic HTML code that old browsers can process. When a user clicks on any search result to access the webpages, they are processed by the PHP port of Mozilla Readability which is the main library that powers the Reader Mode of Firefox. This ensures that the results are stripped down and converted to as basic HTML as possible that is readable by the old browsers.
How it Works:
1. Click on the link that we have provided at the end of this article to navigate to FrogFind. No registration or sign up is required to use it.
2. Type or paste your search string in the box at the top of the page and click on the button ‘Ribbbit’.
3. FrogFind will get the search results for you almost instantly in basic HTML format that is easily readable by the browsers on vintage machines.
4. Once you click on any search result the web pages will be converted to plain basic HTML format as explained above so that they can be easily readable by the old machines.
Many people are used to maintaining their classic old computers as they are passionate about them and find it to be an interesting hobby as well. FrogFind is a very handy website for such people to search for information on the world wide web using their vintage machines as all the web pages are converted to basic HTML format for readability.
