For those who like to search using multiple engines, but who are tired of opening multiple browsers or tabs, there's now a simple, elegant solution . . . Sputtr. At first glance, Sputtr looks like a keyboard with a text window. . . perhaps some new instant messaging application. However, every “key” is actually an icon for a search tool, be it Google (in many flavors) Yahoo!, Digg, Technorati or (as of this date) 31 other options.
Sputtr is easy to use. Although the “default” Google shows up to the immediate right of the text (query) box, selection of an alternative search tool simply requires a click on the appropriate “key” following query entry.
For an instant, and highly flexible search toolset, open a browser tab for Sputtr, and go there when a search is required. You may even find it so useful, that you set it as a default start page or tab. You won't have to remember the search options . . . they are all at your fingertips.
