I've made a table that compares some metasearch engines.
(I've omitted the Overture/FindWhat/... engines). Here it is in the csv format:

the number 1 means that the engine is querried by the meta-search engine.
the number -1 means that the engine is listed as being querried, but actualy is not.

It's nicer in Excel ;-)

Nice work

But close to imposible to read like that. I took the liberty to make an html document of it in Excel: [buvik.org...]

PhilF: hopes this is ok by you, if not let my know, and I will remove it.

No problem at all :-) On the contrary, I'm glad you did it!
If anybody wants to use these data in any way, please do so.
