Meta Search Engine Sputtr

There are more meta search engines out there than stars in the sky, I reckon, but this one is quite good-looking:* collects a variety of search engines under a single search box. There’s Google News, Google blog search, Google Video and so on for the Google-lover; there’s Snap, and Ask for those who like to see how search underdogs perform; there’s a lot of social news sites, like Digg or Reddit, and there’s a lot of miscellaneous engines. All of this is laid out with a large-font & icons design screaming “2.0” (and though the icons are large, you can hover over them if in doubt)., who pointed to this site in the forum, says Sputtr makes “a damn good browser homepage.”

Also see my multi search gadget for iGoogle (and feel free to clone that gadget to adjust to your needs).

*"Sputter” means “To spit out words or sounds in an excited or confused manner.”
