Chapter 12. Excite

Good to Know

  • One of the original Web search engines, Excite is now part of Excite@Home, a company that provides Internet portal features and high-speed cable service.

  • Excite supports the use of Boolean operators and makes it easy to search for news and multimedia files.

  • But its database is relatively small (250 million pages) and it lacks “power search” options like field searching, case sensitivity, and wildcards.

  • If you don't like Excite's cluttered home page, you can “personalize” it, or enter your queries on a page devoted to searching.
