    Ive used as a beta tester and it really saves a ton of time in researching for information, cuts out
    dozens of emails between friends / coworkers across which important information is spread around,
    and eliminates repeated and duplicate searching when working together
    with others. @ddeja:disqus You are right, SearchTeam is not a general purpose search engine replacement. Rather, I think it is very useful for all those types of searches which inherently involve groups of people. Here are some examples cited by the site -- planning a vacation with friends or family, shopping for a big ticket item, planning a wedding, doing a group research project in school, planning a big event like a reunion with extended family or friends, researching a competitor at work, preparing background information about about a new client or prospect at work, doing background research on new employee candidates at work, finding and organizing and sharing music videos with friends, researching a disease or medical condition for treatment options in a family setting -- it is indeed perfect for dozens of needs like this.

    Syntaclet - hmm... FF has it's firebug, Opera has dragonfly, IE has it's F12, Google Chrome has it's Ctr+Shitf+I - i think that's enough.

    I.O.U Mate - who on earth would wanna show publicly how deep in debts is he/she?:)) Common:)

    SearchTeam - interesting idea. I only have one problem with it. I think that this idea has a short range.

    First of all your friends have to know exactly what are you searching for - otherwise the range of answers can be pretty wide.

    Secondly when you search something that's usually in a short time range. So try to get around some friends in the same time. Almost impossible:)

    But i think that this kind of search could be great in work related environment - your associates are at the same time at work. The topic is usually the same. So that could work:)

      I'm the developer of I.O.U. Mate and wanted to clear something up: your friends can only see debts they individually share with you. You also have the option to track debts privately by simply not sharing with a particular friend.

      Keep in mind that "debts" is used pretty loosely, and doesn't refer just to money. You can track something you borrowed from a friend (a book or movie) or keep a reminder that it's your turn to pick up lunch next.

      By the way, I agree that it would be pretty ridiculous if our service showed all your debts to all your friends! I'm sorry that you got this impression, and will revisit our home page to try to make the purpose of our service more clear.
