Metacrawler is the best of the best. It's meta search facility is certainly very capable, as it gives you very accurate results, but what makes it better than the likes of Yahoo or Excite? Well, let me explain.

You can choose where your results come from:
As with many search engines nowadays, you can choose where in the world your results come from. This is especially popular with British surfers who only want to know about site in Britain. So, for example if you wanted to search for an English football team you would select the British search only as the search may come up with American football teams. This is very handy to cut down your results to the ones you need.

You can choose what type of file to search for:
You have the option with metacrawler to search for objects such as images or music files, this narrows down your search also. So, if you wanted a certain MP3, then you would search for it's name and go to the MP3/Audio tab to find your song.

Also as with many other search engines, Metacrawler can search either as a phrase, all of the words, or any of the words. Which is again very helpful.

Overall, Metacrawler, along with its other channels such as shopping, is everything you would need in a web site. Metacrawler may not have the best of sites, but it has the best of search engine.

Used to be a big fan of MeatCrawler myself - lately I feel it's been less useful than my new favourite Google... very similar feel - a little easier to use advaned functions for beginners and very accurate results - give it a once over.
