Ping's Search Page

This page makes my bookmarks much easier to manage. It is the easiest way to remember all those numerous search-engines. I have tried to recreate most of the forms-based search capabilities as consistently as possible, while retaining their functionality. However, I cannot (and will not) even begin to emulate the full functionality of sites like Yahoo or HotBot.
Planned additions/extensions are WebCrawler, WebSearch, WhatsNewToo, Sleuth and whatever else I can dig up. If you find any errors or if you have suggestions for improvement or additions or even finished forms, then drop me a note.

Local jumps for those engines I have forms for
