With all the meta search tools available -- and many of them not worth the space they occupy -- it's difficult to motivate yourself to check out another. Ez2find.com, however, is worth your time. It passes your query to AlltheWeb, AltaVista, Teoma, Yahoo, and Wisenut, and then clusters the results so that you can focus your query on a narrower or related topic. Ez2find.com uses its own clustering technology, and retrieves Google hits from Yahoo.

Features include the ability to translate or preview a hit (Web page opens within a pane -- not a frame -- in the search results.). Users can also set some search preferences, search deep within select Web sites (see Advanced Search), and install a bookmarklet for searching the Web without visiting Ez2find.com directly. Consider adding Ez2find.com to your list of better meta search tools.
