Sean, (whom I don’t know personally, but happens to a friend of a friend of mine (Ace)) pointed to the fact that a cool meta search engine is live: gada.be
Most notable benefits:
– since you enter the search terms as part of the URL, you can bookmark regular search items (if you regular search for a certain word, you can bookmark http://word.gada.be)
– as the search term is part of the URL, it is much more convenient when entering the URL through a mobile phone.
– it’s a meta search. So it returns results from Google, MSN, Yahoo, etc. all at once.
(More infos here, here and here.)
And of course (and not least), the blog post of the originator of all this.
