Ssssshhhh, it's a secret

Tiscali is about to relaunch the Excite portal and search engine through out Europe.

In April the ambitious Italian ISP revealed that it had acquired the Excite brand and domain name for the whole of Europe. And last week visitors to Excite.co.uk noticed a new message: "Welcome to EXCITE! We are back - and we have created the most complete search channel on the web for you. Take advantage of our collection of 2,100,000,000 web sites and the world's largest man-made directory!"

The site also has Tiscali logos, ads and links plastered all over it.

So, what's up then? We asked Tiscali, and they were as helpful as ever.

Sorry, we can't tell you anything more about this, they said. There's news coming out in the next couple of weeks - you'll have to wait until then. It seems Tiscali doesn't want to say any more in case they spoil their pan-European launch.

Excite UK Ltd - a joint venture between Excite@Home and BTopenworld - ceased trading in December after the companies failed to find a buyer for the business. ®
