I may be being silly but I think this is really cool. In my computer class, one of the things we studied were search engines and how they really worked..ok..booleans law and all that but that's not what I want to show you. OK...type in graball for your search and there will come up a search engine that looks kind of like google. THEN..type in any research word and check out the results! I am thinking this is going to be an awesome research tool for me in my next class. Tell me what you think of it and did you already know about it?

It's neat huh? There are other options in little tabs at the top. You can actually choose what engines you want to see on your page. You can also scroll and modify your search on each side of the page seperate. Glad you liked it.

I think you did the right thing, really useful when you don't have to search for any other search engine when you are looking for an answer. It splits into two, first time I saw this. How many are they right now on web? Do you have any idea?

This is so cool, Jenin. Thanks for not being selfish to share this knowledge with us all. Awesome, really. I tried and the fact that there are 2 search engines pop up at one time totally saves time. Especially when I want to do a quick search. This is just fabulous...thanks again yeah.

Wow, amazing. Thanks, Jenin. Another great tip there. It actually is very much like the interface on a super cool new search engine, but actually it's that little trick that makes wonders, fabulous!

It seems interesting indeed. It gives you three for one word written. We surely will get all the information on anything and from three different directions. I will have to remember it. Where do these instructors find such things anyway? It will definitely be an awesome tool since I love to do research so much! Thanks.

I heard about this somewhere but never really tried it and forgot. Now I remember. This is really cool. You can really select which search engines you want to compare and that is awesome. Thank you JenInTN.

I love it. It's really going to help me out with my next classes. Bet it helps with computer speed to since it's just one tab working instead of two. Here's a great article that have several of these metadata engines in it. I just happened to like the graball. www.altsearchengines.com/2009/06/11/phil-bradley-on-search-engine-comparisons

Your very welcome. I think it's pretty interesting too. I was a little worried that I might be the only person in the world that hadn't heard of it. I hope you get as much use out of it as I am thinking I will. Thanks for the response.

I tried it out and found it to be a great browser for advanced searches, although I would not have much need for it. I do however acknowledge the information that you have supplied, and perhaps it may come in handy some day. Thank you. cd

Thanks crazydaisy. It's not a browser that everyone really needs but it can come in handy if you ever do. Thanks for responding and take care.

It brought up 2 search engines side by side, AltaVista and AOL. Interesting. And nope, I hadn't heard of this one. Have you heard of DogPile? I use that one sometimes...

Dear JenInTN, this graball thingy is really cool. I like the double-pane feature best. I can compare search results side-by-side, whereas in the past, it cannot be achieved without using 3rd party software.

It can be very handy for people that like to or have to do a lot of research. Who needs a bunch of third party software?..lol..Thanks for the response.

WOWWWW this is AMAZING! I never knew they had such a thing! Hmmm might be cool when looking for keywords and what comes up under different words when your working with rank and listing in different search engines. Thanks for listing this might help alot of people here.

It sure is going to be a huge help to me. I love useing it. There are other metadata engines too. They use different search engines. I just liked Graball that best because there were the tabs at the top to switch between the engines I had heard the most about. Thanks for responding.
17 Jan 10
wow, awesome, spends a lot of time. and I got even different search results, which is even cooler, donĀ“ t have to type twice, thanks Jen :D
