[Ez2find] (ex ew2www)
Ez2Find is a good French metasearch engine that gathers results from various main search engines,
parses the results, removes the duplicates and
includes links to relevant directory categories (results from the Open Directory) and to clustered results.
Note the "clustered results" on ez2find's right side!
Ez2find also offers Systran's translation (pseudo-proxi) service.

Metasearch for images as well
"The algorithms developed by
iBoogie are using a combination of linguistic clustering and
statistical clustering. They generate hierarchical clustering as
opposed to a simple "flat" grouping of similar documents. This is done
in real-time on a set of documents return by the search, without any
predefine grouping, pre-build knowledge base, or pre-processing of all
the document collections used by the search engines."
clustering is computationally inexpensive and very fast,
it will process 250 text snippets in about 140 milliseconds on
a Pentium III, 864Mhz with 256MB of main memory"
Nice meta with images and links together.
"With a single query, you get the most comprehensive results
from Altavista, Teoma, Alltheweb, Amazon, Sprinks, DMOZ, Yahoo,
and Kanoodle. For every query, ilectric metasearch sorts and
ranks each hit, removes duplicates, and presents the end result
with inline images"

Gheez Fravia+: I found an
interesting and very helpful search
technique encapsulated at www.quickbrowse.com that I
referenced by URL or concept on your new pages. Concept
is simple... goes
to desired engine and downloads ALL the pages of hits from your
more "For the next 20 hits, click here and wait 20 seconds"
just get a long HTML doc that has all the hits from that
engine. There is
a onetime login process that take about 30 seconds and a
cookie no doubt,
but after that you can use the "Quicksearch" link and the rest
of the iterations
of the quickbrowse implementation.
Makes life a lot easier for me,
and thought you
might want to include it in your excellent pages of
lores. I have learned
SO much from you over the years, thanks for sharing your
