Wasn't that the one that crawled several search engines?

No, it crawled Web sites. Was great in the beginning because there was nothing to compare it to. But, much like Alta Vista, there's too much chafe and not enough meaningful content in the search results. Yahoo and then Google ended up with much better search engines.

Maybe you're thinking of Dogpile? When you use it to do a search, it utilizes several popular search engines including Google, Yahoo, Alta Vista, etc.

Looked back and I think it was Metacrawler.

I get pretty much the same results from webcrawler that I do from google. Have you used it lately, or am I just missing something?
