DeeperWeb is a free search engine tool for Google users that allows navigating through search results by employing tag cloud techniques. Additional technologies such as Topic-Mapping methods are implemented to assist users in identifying relevant results upon a specific topic.

The tool allows integration with Google search results via its website as well as via a Firefox extension. A search plugin could be used for searching directly from the browser’s search box and is supported on both Internet Explorer 7 and 8 and Firefox 3+ web browsers.

On May 5, 2009, DeeperWeb announced its beta release and has received a favorable welcome from the Internet and social media.[1][2] DeeperWeb's idea is based on a research article[3] written by the company founders, which examines the relationship between the core search engines and the Vertical search markets.
