It looks like the meta search engine jux2 has added a desktop search widget so you can do a combined search on Google, Yahoo and MSN without going to your browser. If you don’t already use widgets, you’ll need to download the Yahoo widget engine first.
jux2 was named Best Meta Search Engine by SearchEngineWatch and was purchased by a Internet entreprenuer last year. Other enhancements made since the change in ownership of jux2 include the addition of a toolbar for Internet Explorer, adding MSN to search results, a Firefox search plugin and the ability to add jux2 search to your web site.
What’s interesting about jux2 is that you can easily search the top 3 search engines and see what each missed. There is actually very little overlap between the engines. By combining the results of Google, Yahoo and MSN, you can find information that might otherwise would have been left out.
