Rollyo offers you for free to make a personal search engine from the sources you trust in an easy and fast way. The reason I like Rollyo so much because it gives you all the features and freedom to make the search engine you have always wanted to have in one place. It lets you select all the engines you visit and they are put into one place. After you have finished your personal search engine, Rollyo can take you several steps further with its features. For instance there is sharing your searchrolls, searching YOUR top news sites and blogs, the RollBar Bookmarklet, the Roll a Firefox Search Engine, and much more. I really think that this is the best search engine that there is out there because you make it to fit your way of surfing the net.
