Company

Business description: Have you ever felt frustrated when researching products on the web? Have you ever been unable to determine the product or service that best met your needs? The Become.com research service is dedicated to solving these problems. Our mission is to help you make ideal buying decisions. Our research service enables you to locate valuable (and often hard to find) shopping-related research: buying guides, reviews, articles, specifications, forums, merchants, and a variety of other relevant information. Unlike general purpose search engines, we work to avoid providing you with search results composed of information unrelated to shopping or merchants trying to sell you something. Rather, we direct you to research-related information that helps you best determine what to buy. For topics where very little (if any) research information exists on the web, we provide you with the most relevant links available - including pages from merchants and various sites discussing the topic of interest.
