AOL NetFind - AOL NetFind (keyword: NetFind or click on the toolbar) is the most accessible search engine for AOL Members. It is relatively simple cup a tea search engine and the default for AOL members. Basically NetFind is really is EXCITE underneath the covers, but with AOL favors added.

Excite -This search engine stands out from the rest with excellent, customizable search opinion for advavced queries.

Yahoo! - The largest directory on the Web, YAHOO! has brabded itself as more then a directory since its 1994 Net debut. Currently, the Web "portal" offers an online service (with MCI), chat, news, classifieds, e-mail, and more.

AltaVista: Main Page - This search engine one of the most popular search engines on the web (next to yahoo). WOW, what a search engine it is. Using spiders (no Halloween joke) some of which crawl the wed daily, Alta Vista indexes almost every word of every site it visits- perhaps as many as 50 million sites. DO TAKE THE TIME TO LEARN IT, however or stick to something less complex like Netfind.

HotBot - Hotbot is from WIRED magazine (AOL Keyword: WIRED), and as you might expect, it's the most graphical search engine of them all. A useful feature here lets users search specifically for audio and video and images online.

Infoseek -Combines a powerful search engine (such as Lycos and Alta Vista) with a very large Web directory (such as Yahoo!).

Lycos Home Page - Lycos offers two powerfyl engines levels of seaching: basic and custom. An excellant search engine and very good laid out.

Welcome to Magellan! - This is my the same folks who bring you Excite, is yet another combination site, with both a Web directory and a search engine.
Magellan's special claim to fame is the fact that you can screen out adult-orientad sites with the Green Light feature (see box check on search).

LookSmart - exploring World - Similar in desigh at Yahoo!, this site also offers a directory of Web sites. Its simple, straight-forward layout may be easier to navigate tham those of its competitors.

There are some search engines that save you alot of time and get more results then the single engines above. These are MegaSearch sites. These engines use one or more of the above engines that integrate the results. Here are some I found.

the Internet's best search engines, databases, indexes, and directories in a single site. The ALL-IN-ONE starting point for Internet searching! - TWELVE SEARCH ENGINES IN ONE - Is a buffet for 12 search engines in one. Why have one when you could use 12 at once. Hey it useful.

MetaSearch at Highway 61 Highway 61 - Two new features have been added to Highway 61!

Also, you can now choose to have links sent to new windows.

Search The Internet with The Internet Sleuth
Internet Sleuth--
The Internet Sleuth is a bit different from the other search engines you might have used. While Alta Vista or Lycos attempt to index the entire Web The Sleuth maintains an index of searchable databases, most of which can be searched directly from The Sleuth, simplifying the search for information.

Fax Numbers - Mamma: The Mother of all Search Engines - http://www. In 1996 we got the idea to provide a smart meta search tool for content retrieval on the World Wide Web. Since then we have expanded our vision to include new research tools and play a role as a free content aggregator for Web users. We hope you enjoy Mamma and find it a useful time saving mechanism in your research.

This free service was developed to offer efficient point and click access to search engines, newsgroups and thousands of hard-to-reach databases. provides a single interface for both parallel and nonparallel methods of searching multiple sites.

WebCrawler - fine engine simliar to Megacrawler.

Inference Find! -- Home Page and Resource Center -This is another "metacrawler", excellant groups results into relevant subjects headings.
