I think it's worth noting that @connor works on Domainr with Eric Case and 1 other guy (who I'm blanking on right now) and they do a fantastic job
Just caught @plc's essay about another domain registrar, iwantmyname.com (http://plc.vc/iwantmyname-the-best-domain-registrar), coincidentally discovered through Domai.nr :)

@connor I'm always afraid some evil squatter overlord peeking into my domainr results to steal my search just before I register. Gahhhh this world could go without these evil people.
Yep! We're big fans of IWMN.
Also, @ZackShapiro — it's Randy Reddig, Cameron Walters, Eric Case and myself. The 3 of those guys started it and I hopped in a few years later after hacking a lot on their API :)
Domai.nr has been my favourite domain name hunting tool for years :)
Favorite domain tool by a mile.
Eric from Domainr here — thanks for the kind words, all! We launched the site ~5 years ago and have spent nights/weekends on it since. @connor hacks on it with us.
@kam_bain we are definitely not evil squatter overlords (to my knowledge), though you might want to confirm that with Zack and Connor. ;) This practice is called front-running, and we absolutely do not do it, nor would we ever consider it. We don't even own a portfolio of domains — we're product hackers, not domain squatters.
@tommoor I'm a huge fan of Sqwiggle btw — it's essential when I'm working remotely from my team.
