Engine combines 20 searches in one

ForeFront today unveiled a Net search program that combines 20 search engines in one $49.95 package.

ForeFront today unveiled a Net search program that combines 20 search engines in one $49.95 package.

Called WebSeeker for Windows 95 and Windows 3.1, the search engine sends a query to 20 other engines--including Yahoo, Alta Vista, Excite, and Lycos--and then combines the results in a single report. The report removes duplicates and unrelated results, according to ForeFront officials.

Although users can search through most of the individual search engines used in WebSeeker for free, ForeFront officials say the superengine is worth buying because it gets more results in less time and does not include advertising.

WebSeeker was designed by Blue Squirrel, which was acquired by ForeFront last month.
