About Us: »byteSearch is an extremely powerful, fast, and efficient search tool made for YOU, the internet user. Whether you are looking for information on the web, companies, multimedia, news, package tracking, stocks, or usenet, this searcher is for you. How does it work exactly? byteSearch takes your query string and requests information from each major search engine. It then stores the results, formats them, and prints them out in an easily managable form. Why use this? Easy. byteSearch saves you time. Think about it. In an average of ten seconds, you can have the results from all of the major search engines printed out before your eyes. This means you can find what you are looking for quicker and easier!

Why Choose byteSearch?: Speed man...Speed! Let's face it, isn't that what we are all after on the internet? An average search on byteSearch takes 6-8 seconds and returns up to 150 results, while an average search on Metacrawler takes 5-6 seconds and returns less than half that amount. In addition, think of the time you save by not having to visit each and every search engine to conduct your search. Now doesn't it make sense to use byteSearch?« Source

Ben Bruning: »Co-Founded and developed byteSearch Inc., a site driven by multi-threaded aggregate search applications using ASP, Microsoft SQL, and Perl solutions, which generated traffic of up to 100,000 unique visitors per month.« Source
