  • I see a meta search engine in my future. I used to use several search engines independently (google, bing, yahoo), which was time consuming. I like the looks of dogpile (it's light and airy) and will give that a try. I also didn't know that Wolfram was a search engine. As a math teacher, I can definitely use that.
