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.
Ixquick.com starts off well. A simple search page rather than the cluttered nightmare of Yahoo and others. However, things start to slow down. Ixquick searches through a number of directories and then integrates the results to show you the best matches. It’s this integration of the results that makes Ixquick.com worth, at least, a try.
The other plus point on Ixquick.com is its easy search for pictures or mp3 options.
Ixquick falls down on speed. I hate a slow search engine. Additionally, I’m not keen on search engines which pop up a new window when you try and follow a link.
