San Jose (PRWEB) August 11, 2006
Trexy.com announced the launch of its new ‘Add Engine’ feature today enabling users to add search engines in real time, increasing the number of engines that search trails can be created on.
The new ‘Add Engine’ feature is a mechanism for extending the range of search engines that Trexy is able to recognise. This feature allows the user to individually suggest engines and add them to Trexy’s database by the use of a simple, two-step online form.
Trexy’s CEO and Inventor, Nigel Hamilton said: “Trexy currently works with over 3,000 online search engines, but these engines are just the tip of the iceberg. We wanted to give Trexy users the power to remember their searches on any engine, no matter how big or small.”
Trexy is the first search engine to interoperate with thousands of other search engines to remember and share individual search trails. A search trail is the click path a searcher creates after entering a keyword or phrase into a search engine and browsing the web for an answer.
“We’ve designed Trexy to complement a user’s current searching habits. The more engines we can connect to, the more search trail information that can be created across a broader spectrum of online databases helping users to remember and find the most relevant results online,” he
For easy access, the ‘Add Engine’ feature is integrated into the TrailBar, the toolbar that enables a user to blaze search trails. The TrailBar activates and displays a green light when a user conducts a search on an engine that Trexy can connect to.

This is Trexy’s first time exhibiting at the Search Engine Strategies Conference in San Jose.
Trexy is a unique search technology that allows users to remember and share their searches and the web pages they visit by creating search trails. Trexy.com is inspired by scientist and visionary, Dr. Vannevar Bush, who in the 1940’s shared his vision of creating a collective memory by recording peoples' trails through information. Bush dreamt of a device called a “Memex” – an enhanced supplement to personal and community memory created by trailblazers: “those who find delight in the task of establishing useful trails through the enormous mass of the common record.” Free to use, Trexy’s toolbar called the TrailBar, works with Firefox and IE browsers.
