Up And Coming Site With New Features

AdvantagesFree text messaging

DisadvantagesDisplays the Lycos name at the end of msg's

"Lycos is an absolutely great site now and it has really developed over the last few years to be a strong contender with other main web domains such as Yahoo and Alta Vista. However, I now think that Lycos can not just compete with these sites but they have now developed into a very powerful web domain.

Useful

AdvantagesEasy to use

DisadvantagesNone

"Lycos. co. uk is a very useful search engine. It is very quick and will bring up accurate searches, instead of the usual irrevelant searches. It is very user-friendly, as it is not very difficult to use. The website itself is quite decorative and quite pleasing to the eye. I also quite like the symbol for lycos with the dog's nose supposedly finding everything and being able to search for even the hardest things to find. If you want to find an exact ..." Read review
