Grokbase (1999): »Brightgate Metasearch is the newest meta-search site on the net. It searches over 18 (most used) search engines on the Internet, well above the average of all other metasearch sites. There is also an option to submit a url to 30+ search engines. Of course, do not forget the MP3 and Files search options, if you are looking for that special MP3 or file then chances are you will find it with Brightgate Metasearch. http://www.brightgate.com« Source


Checks: »A meta search engine that allows you to customize the number of listings shown. Fast and comprehensive with average relevancy for a meta search engine. Provides control over which engines searched. Results given in one long easy to scroll list with redundant listings. Unfortunately the home page design is cluttered, flashing banners next, preselected links, poor quality graphics, etc.« Source
