Multi-search - Mighty Little Mega Web Search Center. Download Free!




ONLINE SEARCH MADE EASY!

There are a million search engines and search tools on the net. While use of one or two of these might be all that's needed for the bulk of the Internet users, there are those who need a lot more search sites. These will find Multi-search immensely useful. And do not forget that most people want to avoid having to manually go to each search engine's website and search there especially if you have a hard time finding what you're looking for. Multi-search has many of the most popular and widely used search engines on the net so you can never go empty handed.

MULTI-SEARCH IS POWERFUL, EASY, BEAUTIFUL AND FREE!

Multi-search is a web page where you can search the Internet with any of more than 15 search engines by typing your keywords JUST ONCE!  Simple. That's what Multi-search is all about. Download and try it on your own laptop/pc today!

SEARCH ENGINE GROUPING

There are three distinct groups you can see here. Click on either of the two images above to check these out.

GROUP I [Yahoo.com through Duckduckgo.com on the top of the box on the left]
This is my most favorite group as a developer of this search tool. Multi-search users need to type their keywords just ONCE and they can then click on the buttons of any of the first set of 16 search engines any way they like! Typing the keyword on every site is NOT NEEDED.

GROUP II [Lycos.com through Surfwax.com in the middle of the box on the left]
Then there is also a bunch of search sites that Multi-search can't get to work as with the first group above. Here you need to press a button to open it on the viewer on the right side, then type the keywords on their search bar. And repeat the same procedure if you click on another button from the second group again. Typing the keywords on every site IS NEEDED. Not perfect but okay I'd guess. 

GROUP III [Google.com and others like it]
You can't see this group on the box on the left. This group won't let Multi-search bring up their search sites on the viewer on the right so we can use it as group I or group II. You need to go to their website from your browser and search there all by yourself. Remember however, that the world doesn't end if Multi-search can't access Google. Others can, and so there's a workaround here anyway. Use and be satisfied with meta search engines such as dogpile, metasearch, metacrawler and others that bring up results from major search engines such as Google, Yahoo, Yandex and Baidu.
