What?

"Ever feel the need to search Google and Yahoo! at the same time?"

About as often as I feel the need to pour camel urine in my tea, actually.

Google's ads (aka "sponsored links") are easy to identify and easy to ignore. Yahoo's ads are pervasive, and disguised - and their search engine is prone to delivery of more irrelevant results than relevant.

In the past I used Dogpile, but I've found in recent years that Google gives me what I need with a minimum of fuss and very little "hey, buy this" crap, so I've switched to a direct Google search. It was Google results I always used from Dogpile anyway. I've simply cut out the middleman.

All4One - ten years ago!

I remember being introduced to All4One some time ago which searched Yahoo, Lycos, Altavista and Webcrawler and display the results in 4 resizeable panes using a frameset!

Wow, things have really progressed in 10 years!

Metacrawler.com

Probably the first, and still there.

I don't really understand how this gets so much hype. At least Metacrawler and All4One consolodate the results. searchboth is one click more convenient than having two windows open... because it just opens two frames.

Google do Yahoo's results anyway..

It's true, as well you know, you sneeks, that Google do Yahoo's search results. So searching on yahoo is just like searching on google.

Or goggle, as you like to spell it in your article.

Well done, you've surpassed yourself this time.

Yawn

Haven't you heard of Goggle? It's a search engine specially made for us myopic IT workers.

Huh?

Did I really waste 5 minutes of my life reading about this?

I could've spent that 5 mins making a clone of this site in PHP: that's 2 minutes to make the website and 3 minutes to email the register for some free marketing...

That's just really annoying...

The way the frames sizes change on mouseover. That's a terrible bit of interface design.

As pointed out though, this isn't by any means the first, and certainly not the best, site to attempt this.

Form, substance

It seems all the development effort is going into repackaging existing the search engines to make the results look pretty. Is anyone actually thinking about making a better engine, or is Google as good as it gets?

Google don't provide Yahoo's search results

Hate2Register-

It's true, as well you know, you sneeks, that Google do Yahoo's search results. So searching on yahoo is just like searching on google.

This is no longer true. In around 2004 Yahoo bought Overture who owned AllTheWeb and Altavista and also bought Inktomi incorporated their results as well as the Yahoo Bots to scour the Internet.

No advanced search !

Except for metacrawler (thanks David) none of these sites offer a GUI for stuff like domain, excluded words and the like. Unless I missed something.

When did anyone ever do a search without "advanced" options ?
