Today’s website is Trexy. Trexy is a search engine that remembers your searches for you. Trexy can be used alone or you can download the toolbar and use it to track and remember your searches while using Google, Yahoo, etc. It basically has 3 different functions:

Remember: My Trails (allow you to go back to a previous trail that has been saved)
Find: Blaze a New Trail (start a new search)
Share: All Trails (if someone has already done a search on your topic, you can use their search)

According to Trexy, these are the 10 ten reasons you should give them a try:

•Never search for the same thing twice. Keep a record of all your searches and the webpages you visited across all the search engines you use.
•Keep using your favourite engines. Create search trails on your favourite engines such as Google, Yahoo!, and AlltheWeb.
•Reduce your effort. Be guided by other searchers. Follow in the footsteps of other searchers who have already found what you're looking for.
•Shorten your search time. Bypass all the browsing steps and jump straight to the end of the search trail to find your answer.
•Find hand picked results. Let humans, not robots, decide what is a good result. Benefit from the discoveries other searchers have made before you.
•Discover new search engines. Create and follow trails on any of the search engines that Trexy connects to.
•Follow popular search trails. Find better results. Trexy calculates which trails are more popular, showing the best results for a query.
•Become a better searcher. Learn from other searchers by seeing what other engines and search terms they use to find information.
•Be the first to blaze a trail. Share your knowledge and experience anonymously with other searchers. The first person to blaze a search trail becomes the Trailblazer.
•Free to use. Trexy and the TrailBar are free.

Try out Trexy.
