Yippy is a metasearch engine: it queries several top search engines and groups similar results together into “clouds.” Clouds help you see your search results by topic so you can zero in on exactly what you are looking for or discover unexpected relationships between items.
iSeek is a targeted search engine for students, teachers, administrators, and caregivers. iSeek uses safe search technologies and editor-reviewed content while searching thousands of trusted resources from universities, government, and established noncommercial providers. Results are sorted into efficient groups.
