SearchFox Bites the Dust

I just got an email from Este­ban Kozak, Prod­uct Man­ager of Search­Fox, with the fol­low­ing sad news:

Search­Fox will shut down on Jan­u­ary 25, 2006

Thanks for all your help in mak­ing Search­Fox what it is. We have enjoyed pro­vid­ing this ser­vice, and hope that you have enjoyed using it. Please export all of your links and an OPML file with your RSS sources before the site shuts down. In accor­dance with our pri­vacy pol­icy, we will delete all per­sonal infor­ma­tion on Jan­u­ary 25 after we shut down the services.

This came as a com­plete sur­prise to me. Noth­ing in the blo­gos­phere sig­naled it’s peril or what have you. Oh man, I guess it’s back to News­ga­tor for me till I find another web-based RSS-reader that can do the job the way Search­Fox did it.

Update
This just came in from Techcrunch: it seems that Search­Fox got bought out by Yahoo!
