Advantages: Fast and up to date
Disadvantages: nothing special
Excite is a fairly standard search engine. It does not have any features that make it stand out from the rest, but nor does it have any disdvantages which make it worse than its competition.
As this is a less used engine it is often faster at presenting results than Lycos or AltaVista, but they are in the same category as far as the results that are returned.
In comparission to Yahoo it is more up to date, but it does not sort the results for you as some of the other engines do.
Worth using, but not worth making a bee line to.
