Sidesearch is the quick and easy way to search the internet. Sidesearch displays a second opinion without the hassle of opening multiple browsers.

Web Search: Compare a second opinion from Lycos side-by-side with another search engine.

Now that is pretty interesting...it takes the whole 'footer links to other engines' idea a step further & could also give Lycos an idea of which queries people don't like ;) If they click the other engines results, etc.

Interesting concept, but I have to wonder if it'll help to breathe any life in what seems to be a dying engine...

SearchDay has a feature [searchenginewatch.com] on it.

Jeremy, it's not all dead yet. There's still a nice chuck of traffic coming from European Lycos sites - especially Germany can be well worth the effort.

With reference to the Demo - Does XYZ Search remind you of any other engine? ;)
