Power searchers rarely rely on a single search engine. Queryster is a tool that puts a new spin on meta-searching – searching across multiple search engines from a single interface. By default, Queryster submits your search to 10 of the most popular search engines – Google, WiseNut, LookSmart, Ask Jeeves, DMOZ, Yahoo, AlltheWeb, AltaVista, Teoma and Hotbot. You can customize it to query any of more than 25 popular search engines. Queryster’s front page displays the logos of the search sites you have selected. Clicking on any one makes it your default search site. Enter your query, and Queryster takes you to a page showing the results from your default search site. Still displayed across the top of the page are the logos of the other search sites you have selected. Click any of those to bring up your search results from that site. Queryster makes it easy to search multiple sites and quickly compare results. You can restrict your search to narrower “channels” – shopping, news, reference, images – and also search only Web logs.
