Sputtr: New Competition for Google?

Posted by blatantbibliophiles on September 25, 2008

Ahhhh, Sputtr. You are so pretty, customizable, clean, and simple. And fast. But not in the way your Mama warned you about. Sputtr is this cute little search engine that is really three dozen search engines in one. You just type in what you want to search for, then click on the appropriate button for one of thirty-six different sites, and then you are immediately searching for your topic on that site. Not happy with the 36 choices that make Sputtr happy? Not to fret! You can customize this lovely little site and delete any of those, or add dozens more. Still not happy, you demanding person, you? Well, then, you can submit even more sites to Sputtr, and if you ask nicely, they just might add your favorite site as an option. Maybe. And don’t forget to save your page when you’re finished customizing. You can even ask the nice Sputtr people to open your searches in a new window. I like to do that; I don’t know why. I guess I’m just a multi-window type person.
