    Search Online Databases

    Not software but free and promises to be *very* useful.
    ProFusion.

    Can that search databases? My favorite, Google, can't.

    Very nice. Fast response. Very relevant hits.

    I compared it to Copernicus 2000 and Google on similar querries. Definitely prefer Profusion to Google. Toss up with Copernicus.

    I get the initial response faster with Profusion, but, I can do a lot more with the querry responses later with Copernicus.

    tx for the heads up

    If you did your comparison using ordinary webpage hits you aren't tapping into the real strength of ProFusion. It can go where the others can't - namely inside databases.

    Ok. I am sold. Category searches and I can mark and copy search results to notes for later followup.
