»WiinkZ is a multi search engine which provides button based access to a variety of different engines mainly the usual suspects. It's also got icon access to country based websites - so if you're using the UK version the BBC site pops up, as does the Guardian and so on. Unfortunately you don't seem to be able to edit them yourself, which is a bit of a shame. Wiinkz also provides search access via categories, maps, images and so on. It looked fine to me, though I found the continually changing backgrounds irritating, and they haven't got their HTML quite right, so scrolling is a bit messy.« Source



Name




Critical points

WiinkZ offers an interesting Category Search, but the category "Dating" is in the german version translated as "Dativ" (this is the grammatical case dative).



Features & Functionality

The most links, like Image Search or Yahoo, leads directly to the primary source. After sending a search query the result page of the selected search engine is shown for the query [kd2016].
