Searches :: Of course, the purpose of the toolbar is to be able to search the best resources online. Below you will find some of our currently available searches. We are constantly adding and improving to the research tools available through our toolbar.

Main search engines

  • Google :: Google is our default search engine. It is currently the best search engine online.
  • Yahoo :: Yahoo's search engine is new but is already a close second to Google.
  • MSN :: Microsoft has been planning a major entry into the search engine world and have been slowly getting ready to compete with Google and Yahoo..

Other main search engines

  • a9 :: From Amazon.com this is a search engine that combines Google Web results with Amazon book results as well as Alexa site data.
  • Ask Jeeves :: A "natural language" search engine that allows you to enter phrases and questions to search.
  • AlltheWeb :: A very popular search engine with good results from Yahoo's search index.
  • AltaVista :: One of the most popular search engines and it has been around a long time. It also uses Yahoo's index.
  • Teoma :: Owned by Ask Jeeves this search engine displays search term suggestions (stemming) based on what you search for as well as link collections based on the query.
  • Gigablast :: A new search engine written by a programmer that is the only main search engine with live spidering of submitted URLs. Has a smaller index than the search giants but is, nevertheless, impressive.
  • Wisenut :: This site offers stemming and sub categorization of queries as well as Looksmart results. Features Sneak-a-Peak, allowing you to preview the results within an inline frame.
  • Hotbot :: Allows advanced customization of skins and currently searches the Google and Ask Jeeves indexes.
  • Object Search :: A search engine focused on clustering.
  • Overture :: Overture serves Yahoo's paid results and searches here display Yahoo's index with Overture PPC listings.

Meta Search

Metasearch engines show results from multiple indexes. Our toolbar features many of these search engines for additional variety of algorithm and index depth for the professional researcher.


Directories are indexed by humans so their results are not as deep as search engines but the quality and categorization can be helpful.

  • Open Directory :: Dmoz is the largest directory online, edited by thousands of volunteers.
  • Yahoo :: One of the oldest, largest and most well know directories. Edited by Yahoo employees.
  • LookSmart :: A directory whose commercial topics are edited by LookSmart and the rest edited by volunteer Zeal editors.
  • Google Directory :: The Google directory is based on Dmoz (Open Directory) listings with Google Page Rank instead of alphabetic listings. Useful because Dmoz is often sluggish.
  • Able2Know.com Portal :: A smaller directory edited by Able2Know volunteers. Unique because content is often directly embedded within the directory.
