    Please Review ZapMeta - New Search Engine

    Hello Everyone,

    We recently released the official version of our meta-search engine, www.zapmeta.com after being eight months in beta. Please provide us your input on the following factors:

    1. Speed - Fast? Average? Slow?
    What do you think of ZapMeta's speed comparing to other meta search engines?

    2. Advanced Search
    http://zapmeta.com/search/meta/advanced/adv_web.pl

    and

    Preferences
    http://www.zapmeta.com/search/meta/preferences.pl - Useful or Useless?
    Advanced search enables users to restrict their search and the ability to customize the output of their results. Preferences were made to work in conjunction with advanced search. In other words, if you change a value in preferences, it will also be reflected in advanced search if the value is present.

    3. Design - Visually appealing or overloaded with graphics?
    What do you think of our effort in trying to put a distinction between ZapMeta's design and the plain html design of most search engines?

    4. Result Relevancy - On the mark or not close at all?
    We wanted ZapMeta to return relevant results, so sponsored links will never be included in the actual results (unless selected in preferences). Along with our smart algorithm, ZapMeta is able to produce more relevant results than most meta search engines. Or at least that's what we think, let us know your thoughts.

    5. Bugs and Errors
    Please report any bug or error if you encounter them.

    Anything you dislike or like? Please let us know, all feedback, comments, and/or suggestions are highly appreciated.

    Regards,
    Kevin

    It looks fine from here and the speed is really nice too.
    I like the advanced s. and preferences section good too.
    Don't know what to criticise.

    Nice work.

    Very minor but worthy of mention and another great reason to get more eyeballs on your stuff

    On the front page it say: Over 3.6 millions sites organized in more than 450,000 categories!

    It should be *million* right?

    Everything else looks great and I'm going to use you guys instead of google for a while. I'll leave more feedback as it comes.
