The engine info window contains 10 information categories accessible through the tabs. In the picture the search information is shown.
Average depth : Rebel will maintain the average depth as long as the program is active.
Search efficiency : Measuring Rebel's search algorithm, in general 90% and up is good, below 90% is not so good.
Ponder efficiency : Measuring Rebel's permanent brain guessing the move of the opponent, in general 50% is just great, 60% and up is regarded as very good./p>
