Excite adopts shopping agent

Published on .

Excite introduced the Excite Shopping Search on its Shopping Channel, using software by Jango to enable users to search for specific products on the site. The Shopping Search can pull up purchase forms, product reviews, availability, prices and other information about the selected product.

Excite said also that it has the go-ahead to buy Netbot, an acquisition announced in October. Netbot can search more than 100 shopping sites for specific items.
