Compare Result with Different Search Engine using batch file

To see what results in different search engines provide for a specific query then copy the below code in notepad. Save that file as “abc.bat” and double-click on it.
By using an alternative search engine we can see different results for the same query.


Most of the search engines use parameters as search?q with the search string. Some search engines use parameter as ?q with search string.

For example, here we have used the search string as “ethosspace+Software+Testing+Services” so the same can be used differently for different search engines. The format is mentioned above code.
