Rollyo: Create your own Search Engine
Rollyo allows you to create your own search engine called a searchroll by mashing together up to 25 different sites. This is a very neat tool that allows you to drill down into a specific topic by narrowing your search space to a handful of sites that relate to your topic. You can create a custom search engine for string theory or just use the one created by Brian Greene. There are even searchrolls by Arianna Huffington and Rosario Dawson.
You can even add searchrolls into Firefox's search box, or use the Rollbar bookmarklet with any browser to search any site you're visiting. As with any Web 2.0 site, there is a social dimension. You can share your searchrolls with your friends or remix searchrolls created by others.
Create your searchroll now.
