"Lost" Search Engines
In this section I collect information about "lost" search engines. There are some search engines you will not find in the Internet Archive and nobody seems to have written about them. And to be honest, sometimes I am not even whether these search engines existed or not. But maybe someone else knows more about it.
GOOSE I’m not sure if Goose ever exists, maybe it was only a test engine for scientific analysis [kd2017]. Liu, H., Lieberman, H., & Selker, T. (2002).

MetaBoy MetaBoy was a partner project of MetaBug. It is mentioned on the site of MetaBug: »MetaBoy (I'm still a boy - let's search one-by-one!) Let me introduce my son, MetaBoy! Take him with you while you surf the Web. He will let you search the Web with each of major search engine one-by-one.« I suppose MetaBoy was a kind of Multi SeEn, which offered a search interface to start searching the mayor SeEn one-by-one.
