Our new and improved search, what we call our faceted search, which allows you to toggle on and off various filters, can now be used without any search keywords, letting you browse our database using those filters and all the features of our results!

Our new and improved search is now even more improved!  If your search string matched an INF file entry, we’ll show you the match to help you understand why that driver matches what you are looking for!

Search result relevancy improved!

October 13th, 2009

We just deployed a major enhancement of the driver search indexing! We’re now weighting drivers differently based on meta-information about them which is independent of the search terms used. Previously, the relevance ranking of the search results was based solely on our matching the search terms against the text describing the driver. The newly deployed enhancement causes the relevance ranking to now also factor in broader meta-information about the drivers, such as user ratings and number of downloads.
