WebFetch is a search engine which claims to give its users the ‘best search results available on the web’ by combining search results from the major search engines.
WebFetch’s search results can be displayed by relevance or by search engine, though you need to scroll down the page for organic results if you display Google and Yahoo results.
The ‘Are you looking for?’ options on the right hand side allow you to refine your search, while WebFetch lets you preview the results for a particular website without accessing it.
In addition, WebFetch also provides image, news, video and business listings searches, though these searches are far from comprehensive. For instance, the news search results come from only four sources: Fox News, ABC, Yahoo and Topix.
The search function works well, but the news, video and image searches were less impressive, and the results page is cluttered compared to Google’s.
WebFetch is owned by online search company Infospace.
