Desktop Resources

As Randolph Hock says in his book, The Extreme Searcher's Guide to Web Search Engines, "the best way to really get to know the engines well is to use them." However, everyone likes a little help, and so we have created charts of three types of search tools for the Web--general search engines, collections of selected websites, and meta-search engines. You can link to any of the cited search tools by clicking on them in the chart.
