Type: Meta Search Engine Created at: Colorado State University Created by: Daniel Dreilinger Owner: CNET (since October 1999) / 2008, CNET was acquired by CBS and merged into CBS Interactive
»SavvySearch, an engine developed by Daniel Dreilinger, a graduate student of computer science at Colorado State University, takes a tack similar to Metacrawler. SavvySearch sends your search request out to as many as four sites simultaneously, then either displays the lists one after another or, like Metacrawler, combines them into a single integrated list. SavvySearch selects from a list of 18 search sites the four sites most relevant to your search request, then gives you the option of searching the next group of four, and so on.« Source
