Ixquick Metasearch

Branding itself "the world's most private metasearch engine," Ixquick also features a clean and simple interface. Ixquick indexes fourteen search engines and directories, though users can pick and choose between them if they desire. The real appeal of Ixquick, however, is its "star rating" system for reporting results. While some metasearch engines might be fooled by irrelevant entries at the top of one or more of the engines indexed, Ixquick assigns a star for each time a listing appears in the top ten of the engines indexed. Thus, a result that appears anywhere in the top ten of numerous engines will always be ranked higher than one that sits at the top of just one or two. Ixquick also offers metasearches of selected news, .mp3, and image resources. European language support (German, Spanish, French, Italian, and Portuguese) is provided.
