    It is a type of search engine. Also known as a web crawler, or a web-indexing robot.

    Well, the "Slurp" search engine spider is from Yahoo!

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yahoo!_Slurp

    I think some of the other search engines also have names for their spiders or web crawlers that they use to index web pages, but right off hand I can't remember what the others are. :scratch:
