»HuskySearch was based on MetaCrawler and operated as a service that allowed you to search the World Wide Web and in particular the University of Washington Web. HuskySearch, like MetaCrawler, differed from most search services in that it didn't maintain any internal database. Rather, it forwarded your query to multiple search services in parallel and collated the results.

HuskySearch was used in studies concering aspects of Information Retrieval and Artificial Intelligence and how they relate to search on the Internet. HuskySearch explored methods to improve query refinement. Query refinement on most search services consisted of presenting the form you entered with a prompt to modify it. Better search services suggested words to help refine your query. Our research focused on determining which methods worked well.« Source
