A couple of weeks ago I got an email from Chris Pirillo letting me know about a new metasearch service he devised called Gada.be. I wasn’t able to try it out because I was recuperating from surgery at the time, but today I took it for a test spin and I was immediately won over by its OPML support.
Why? Well, instead of subscribing to a dozen individual search feeds, I can import a single OPML file which links to them all. For example, the OPML below links to 16 different search feeds for the keyword
I’m not a big user of mobile devices (call me a Luddite, but when I’m away from I desk I want to forget all about technology), but if I was I’d also love how Gada.be simplifies keyboard entry of queries from cell phones and other handheld gadgets.
For details, check out Chris’s blog for his announcement of Gada.be’s public beta.
