Search Engines

Search engines allow you to search millions of the billion pages (URLs) on the Web by keywords, subjects, phrases, titles, and names. The ones listed below are among the most popular. The major search engines now let you do image searching without keying in an image command. Google has the largest number of images in its image collection. To compare results, use the subject “giraffe” or “Dido and Aeneas.”
