IXQUICK.COM

IXQUICK.COM is a metasearch engine that provides a wide range of limiters, and allows one to include several terms by using AND within parenthesis. The IXQUICK Search Like a Pro instructions are a great introduction to search strategies that work with subject databases as well as search engines.

IXQUICK boasts about its efforts to ensure user privacy. Unlike most search engines, which display your search terms in the address bar URL, IXQUICK does not show this data.
