Searchday reports today on the new Lycos “second opinion” search utility that automatically displays Lycos search results in a side panel next to search results from Google, Yahoo or most of the other major services. Called Sidesearch, it is a browser plug in for Internet Explorer that runs whenever you enter a query into a major search engine. Lycos results are displayed in a panel on the left side of the browser window, allowing you to view both sets of results in tandem.
