Incredibly slow..... but seems like it could be practical on occasion ..... well maybe....

Can't beat Google......
Take a look at that extension, I find it quite practical:

addons.mozilla.org/firefox/189 ...

It's also a bit like FindForward (shameless plug!)
findforward.com

nice but not for daily search purpose.

Aside from the search portion, it sort of reminds me of the metabrowsing concept that Marc Fest started many years ago with QuickBrowse.

With QuickBrowse, you select the pages and they are returned at a given time as one scrollable page. Very useful if you want to review the same sites on a daily basis and not use an RSS feed. Heck, this service was online long before RSS was the rage.

Interesting... This would be great for someone who just started searching the Web, and does not have a clue about what to expect when looking for stuff.

It would be more useful if they sped it up, and made the images smaller, so that the description could be seen with the results. What about thumbnails...? Nobody has ever done that. :)

<<Your visual Internet search engine.

Pagebull is currently offline for a short maintenance.

Please come back in some minutes and sorry for the inconvenience.>>

Hmmm. Maybe their speed problems killed them and they're now upgrading or something?

Pagebull just got stuck several times in the last days because of too many visitors. We are upgrading and tuning the technical system, so Pagebull *should* be quite fast again in some days.
