"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 what you want to find. It then shows you which search engines it'll look in, these are AOL, Altavista UK, EuroSeek, Excite UK, Fast Search, GoTo, ..." Read review

Rapid and relevant results

Advantagesprovides relevant results rapidly

Disadvantagesnot for exhaustive searches

"Ixquick is a meta search engine, which means that it runs your search through a number of individual search engines.

For example, it may offer you 56 pages out of a total of 472,789 pages found! I use Ixquick on a regular basis both for work purposes and also when answering ..." Read review

is it the best metasearch engine

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

I only use ixquick.com now

AdvantagesFast and accurate results

DisadvantagesNone

"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% relevant in my case, which isn't at all bad, and what I like is that when I click on one of the results, the site comes up in a new window, each time. As soon as ..."
