Just awful

by , Mar 4, 2005 Rated a Very Helpful Review
I signed on with Excite back in the early days of the internet...when anything and everything was fresh and new, and content trumped ease of use and functionality. Now in 2005 it has become exceeding apparent that Excite.com is the Ford Pinto of email ...

Dependable search engines with results!

Pros: easy to use, one of the "grand daddies"
Cons: none really
Excite is one of the better search engines. Many people don't realize that Yahoo is a a PAID directory - sure I use it on occasion but as someone who works with the web, I don't like co's that charge for a listing. I know they have to make $$ but that...

My excite, yeah right

by , Jun 14, 2001 Rated a Helpful Review
Pros: Provides everything you need for a basic search engine
Cons: poor quality
I think this search engine is average and does not do the job for me. The content of the excite search is mostly unrelated to what I searched for. I definitely do NOT recommend excite to anyone who is looking for good content.

Pleasant Design, Poor Search

by , Apr 18, 2001 Rated a Very Helpful Review
Pros: It has a very pleasant personalized page. Efficient screen estate use.
Cons: It is more difficult to retrieve useful search results.
Excite is one of the more popular search engines on the Internet. Like many of its peers (other than Google), Excite has changed itself from just a pure search engine to more of an Internet portal.

Quite frankly, I do not find Excite too...

Pros: Large database, great advanced search feature.

I added this search engine to my America Online favorites list, and it's pretty much the only one I use now. The thing that turned me on to this search engine was the "Advanced Search" feature, and it's different approach to using keywords. There are...

Pros: awesome options and very easy to operate
Cons: using it as a search engine is satisfactory but not as east as yahoo
Well first of all before I get started I just want to clear something up quickly. I basically use excite for its "home page" characteristics as opposed to its main purpose as a search engine. Now I know that sounds like it defeats the purpose, but I...

Excite-More Like a Magazine than a Search Engine

Pros: easy to navigate, good customer service, entertaining
Cons: does not invite a person to search for information

Excite search engine is high quality just like most other search engines. It basically comes down to personal preference. If you like how the site looks and you find it easy to use, then you will use it more often.

Pros: You can build it to suit your needs.
Cons: Can be slow at times.
Excite is the best search engine on the web, with many extras to boot. I have it as my start page, my email, and I have a web store built on it. Excite does not have all the "technical" problems I have noticed on other search engines.
