SnX MetaSearch


SnX MetaSearch is a metasearch engine: it send the search request to other search engines and analyse their replies to generate it own results.

SnX MetaSearch does not claim to be as effective as other metasearch engines. SnX MetaSearch is written in PHP and does not support multithreading, thus searching the Web on multiple search engines may be a time consuming process.

For the moment, SnX MetaSearch submits your search to Google, Yahoo and Altavista. It then analyse their replies and shows up the combined top ten results.

The external search engine request function is a plugin. If you are a PHP developper you can create your own plugin that will send the request to the search engine of your choice.
