HotWired and Inktomi have joined forces to bring you the
latest (and largest) index for searching the Internet, HotBot. Using the Network of
Workstations (NOW) technology first developed at the University of California Berkley, HotBot
replaces the prototype Inktomi index.
Offering more powerful options than you can shake a stick at, HotBot allows you to search for for
different media types, documents that have been updated since a certain date and by physical
server location. No other search site can match Hotbot's aptitude for advanced searches.
