“Bling bling baby”

published 23/03/2001

Searches many engines at once, quick

Not the best selection of search engines to choose...

Bling bling www.ixquick.com is to the best of my knowledge, a relatively new search engine. Having clicked on one of its ads whilst surfing, I gave it a go and was pleasantly suprised. I now use them quite often and rank it after google and altavista. So how does it work? As usual, you'll type in...

“Rapid and relevant results”

published 18/12/2000

provides relevant results rapidly

not for exhaustive searches

Ixquick is a meta search engine, which means that it runs your search through a number of individual search engines. What distinguishes Ixquick from most other meta searchers is that it combines all the results, ranks them by relevance and then presents only a subsection out of the total found...

a good start page, then, ....oh dear

poor archive

search engines are all the same. You type in a catagorie and it finds some answers! This site claims to be the "the worlds most powerful metasearch engine", so is it? *layout* The layout of the start page is the simplest I have ever seen in a search engine. A simple rounded square in the center...

Good

easy to search for pictures

not an exceptional search engine

ixquick.com claims to be the world's best metasearch engine BUT it just doesnt live up to its tag line. With this search engine, u can customise the search to search the news, the web, mp3 or by pictures. This works moderately well in the case of searching for mp3s, returning quite a few hits BUT...

Satisfactory

It has a wide scope.

Slow. Opens too many windows.

Ixquick.com is yet another search engine. Now, as someone who uses the internet an +awful+ lot I always try and check out search engines which I’m told good things about. I remember finding Google when it was still in its beta phase... what a treasure! Sadly, Ixquick.com is not another Google...

“I only use ixquick.com now”

published 16/02/2001

Fast and accurate results

None

After using what seemed like most of the other search engines and not having been too impressed by a lot of the results, I decided to start using ixquick and I have stuck with them. They claim to be the World's fastest search engine and maybe they're right. The results that come up are 90%...

“Its not so bad”

published 10/12/2000

Grading system

Not as exhaustive a search as some others

I have to admit to having a bit of a preference for ixquick.com. I know the members reviews so far have indicated that it`s just another search engine but so far it`s done good service for any search that I`ve conducted on it. It grades the hits according to a star system - Five stars when it...

Top matches for most search engines found

May not be so good for specialist searching

Looking for a good search engine? Then you could far worse than to try www.ixquick.com. It is a meta search engine meaning it searches other search engines for you and returns the top matches. It is very fast and easy to use, one good feature is that each link you click on opens in a new window...
