Formerly, "Clusty," Yippy queries several top search engines, combines the results, and generates an ordered list based on comparative ranking. This "metasearch" approach helps raise the best results to the top and push search engine spam to the bottom.
Search Engines That Don't Track You

This secured channel helps protect your search terms and your search results pages from being intercepted by a third party on your network. Look for the "lock" icon on your browser window and for the url to start with "https" instead of "http". This does not work for Google Images or Google Maps. This does not hide your search data from Google.
