Quarterdeck's WebCompass is one of the most powerful, allowing you to specify search categories (business, let's say) that determine which sites will be queried (CNN Financial Network, for instance).
Quarterdeck Corporation has announced its new PC-based World Wide Web search system, WebCompass, Personal Edition.
WebCompass lets users build a personalized index of topics and store the data they want in a database that uses the Microsoft Access 2.0 database file format.
WebCompass search engine will use in the future to sort data during updates.
Using WebCompass, searchers can also automatically update results, store them locally on the PC, and assign rankings to them.
When a user enters a query or topic of interest, WebCompass polls multiple search engines, such as Lycos and InfoSeek, for relevant Web pages.
WebCompass, Personal Edition, which will cost under $100, works with any Web browser and runs on a 486-based PC with a minimum of 8 megabytes of memory, with 16 megabytes recommended.
WebCompass also lets users build a personalized index of topics that they are interested in and store retrieved data in a database based in the Microsoft Access 2.0 file format.
We can envision a time in the not-too-distant future when there will be higher and predictable bandwidth, WebCompasses, and focused collections of age-appropriate materials on the Web.
