A new version of the Ixquick metasearch engine aims to give users more, and more relevant, internet search results to help them reach their information goals quickly.
Ixquick combines more than 10 international and local search engines, and adds a star rating system to sources so users can quickly evaluate results.
A star is awarded for each search engine ranking a search in its top ten; so five stars means that five separate search engines all rank a particular result highly, indicating it is likely to provide the most relevant information to the user.
Ixquick also offers international search capabilities in more than 17 different languages, and an international phone directory for finding people and companies all over the world.
A power search facility also makes it simple for users to refine searches from the outset, to ensure they obtain targeted results.
