    Search Engines 1 min read
    A World Wide Web search engine developed collaboratively by Inktomi Corporation and HotWired, Inc., the publisher of Wired magazine. Rather than using a few mainframes or supercomputers to search and index Web pages, HotBot uses many workstations working in parallel, what they call a Network of Workstations (NOW). HotBot claims that this strategy allows them to keep up with the exponential growth of the Web better than competing search engines.
