All4one [2005 - 2015]

[NOTE: The site is still available, but does not offer any results anymore, 2015.] ✓

All4one started in 1996 as a parallel search engine. It was developed by John E Haag. A search query was sent to the four search engines Yahoo, Lycos, Alta Vista and WebCrawler at the same time. On the All4one results page, the results pages of the four search engines were displayed side by side in frames, which the user could then compare with each other. All4one was discontinued in 2002 and reopened in 2005 by a new, unknown provider. Since then, the search engine has worked as a metasearch, which compiles the contents of Google, Yahoo, Inktomi, AskJeeves, Overture, Espotting, WebFinder, Mirago, Turbo10 and About and displays them in a uniform, self-ranked result field.

Besides the metasearch All4one offers a kind of information portal with information about search engines. The site is still online today (2019) but has not offered any results since 2015.
