Excite is a web portal. Simply, a website that offers a wide range of different tools to assist your online experience. The most famous site of this genre is Yahoo!, although there are many 'portals' out there. Here's a run down on what Excite has to offer: Search Engine - One of the main...

“Chat”

addictive

none

Excite is another great way of chatting! It is all very straight forward and all you have to do is choose a member ID. There are many chatrooms to choose from ,including, 20's, 30's, music, everything you could think of! It runs very quick also which is a good thing, you can do searches for your...

Good search and you can customize it well.

Well it was the great TV advert that got me first going to this site but I am unhappy to say the site does not look nearly as "exciting" as the adverts. It looks rahter plain and boring and I feel in a world where there is huge competition for internet users, you would have hoped EXCITE could...

doesn't have a messenger program

I’ve been a user of EXCITE’s email service for most of my ‘internet life’. It doesn’t offer as much, in way of tools such as Hotmail’s and MSN’s Messenger service, doesn’t have as many subscribers. But is simple, and easy to use. The pages seem to load much faster than the other email providers...

“Don't get too excited”

published 17/04/2001

lots of features

looks gritty, bad search

Tell me about this excite then? Well excite.co.uk has move towards a portal setting in the last few months, it says it reaches 56% of the UK internet users, you basically type in what you want to search for then choose the option you want to search in, ie UK sites, web, news, europe, photos, mp3...

None

Being a new user of Excite’s free e-mail service I thought it worthy of writing an opinion on Excite.com, itself. Covering all aspects of Excite is not an easy task since they do just about everything and one look at their homepage tells it all. Unlike other companies such as Virgin, Excite...

Like Yahoo, Excite is another one of those sites, which has everything. In my tedious hours of boredom at college, I have spent a lot of time looking around, just checking out new sites. This one is by no means new, but I only started visiting it very recently when it was pointed out by a friend...

“EXCITED YET”

published 26/12/2000

So many extras

some pages too full

Excite is one of those sites that has everything. I originally started with the thoughts of using it as a search engine. As soon as you see the site for the first time though, you'll notice just how much more than that it really is. The first thing I noticed about it was its very complicated look...

Good search engine, free sms messaging

None really, just a less clustered page

Excite.co.uk is certainly one of the better search engines about. I use excite constantly and always find what I need. But that's not all excite has to offer, free webmail, free sms text messages, news and much more. It is all on Excite. As a search engine it offers all the basics, UK Searches...

Excite really isn't much of a search engine, the search facilities are one of the poorest I've seen. Out of all of the sample searches I've tried, they all failed miserably. Thankfully, there is much, much more to Excite than simply searching. Sign up for a free personal account and receive your...

“Not the best but not bad!”

published 05/10/2000

Variety for all ages

Limited chat members

Although this by far isn't the best, it isn't a bad set of chat rooms. The key feature has to be the variety of chat rooms to suit the needs of all ages. The main disadvantage is that as it is not one of the most popular services, the number of chat members can be low and cause dull situations...

Quite accurate results.

Much slower than Google.

Today there are many fine search engines on the Internet including the likes of Google,Yahoo,Search Cactus, Alltheweb, Alta Vista and Excite.Choosing which one is best for you is no easy matter !I dont know who first came up with the idea of search engines but they really deserve a big pat on the...

chaep flights

not that informative

Excite travel is a fairly informative guide to most countrys and cities in the world. You can search by country and by city to find your destination and excite takes you to a page of text about the particular destination rather similar to those opinions on ciao. I was expecting a bit more detail...

wide range of services

only 3 text messages a day

Excite used to be just a search engine. Now its a lot more. When you type in www.excite.co.uk into your browser, you will be surprised how much is now available, especially if you haven't been there for a while. I was! You just have to sign up and then enjoy them. Now, there is a whole range of...
