The only search engine I use.

by , May 3, 2003 Rated a Helpful Review
Metacrawler has never let me down yet; in a nutshell, if Metacrawler can't find what I'm looking for on the Internet, nothing can. It not only searches for the information you want itself, it also sends your request to several other search engines. It...

Metacrawler.com Can Be Used, But "Caveat Emptor"

by , Aug 3, 2001 Rated a Very Helpful Review
Pros: Pleasing layout; many options
Cons: For all its options, it failed me in its main purpose-- search many search engines
While we tend to use one or two search engines out of habit, and we may know that some search engines are better for certain types of searches than others, there are times when we want to search the search engines for what we need. It's at times like...

The Mother of All Search Engines!

Pros: Brings back exactly what you're looking for.
Cons: Takes a little bit of time to load results.

MetaCrawler -- What have you done for me lately?

by , Mar 16, 2001 Rated a Very Helpful Review
Pros: searches all the major engines at once.
Cons: nothing here that google doesn't do better
Metacrawler is a good meta search tool.

But it's another great example of what happens to a company or site that tries to be too much to too many people.

It started out as a grad student project at the University of Washington - the...

by , Nov 27, 2000 Rated a Very Helpful Review
Pros: easy and accurate
Cons: none that I can think of?
I like Metacrawler. It is the only search engine that I have bookmarked. I do not get too many results, and oftentimes, the results I do get point me towards a better search query that points me directly where I want to go.

Pros: Fast, reliable, comprehensive

While the web might appear to be a quagmire of contradictory information, there are several slabs of solid ground for users to walk on; developed as a powerful parallel search engine, Metacrawler quickly rearranges chaos into order.
