Search Crystal — Search Engine Eye Candy

I just stumbled upon this nifty little tool that helps you visualize the results of a particular search spread over several different search engines. I have not had time to experiment with it much, but below is an example of a search for “biblioblogging.” Note that Hypotyposeis’ entry on “Biblioblogging and Book Writing” is marked by all five search engines, hence it has a five-sided “crystal.” Claude Mariottini’s entry on “The Disintegration of the Biblioblogging Community” is covered in four search engines, hence the four-sided crystal. Wave your cursor over any particular search engine on the outer perimeter, and the hits from that particular engine are displayed.
