"Lost" Search Engines

In this section I collect information about "lost" search engines. There are some search engines that you won't find in the Internet archive and about which no one seems to have written. And to be honest, sometimes I'm not even sure if these search engines existed or not. But maybe someone else knows more about it.


GOOSE
I'm not sure if Goose ever existed, maybe it was just a test machine for scientific analysis [kd2017].

MetaBoy
MetaBoy was a partner project of MetaBug. It is mentioned on the MetaBug page.: »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.
