travel bookings

This is exactly what I want ( I think) currently, to get teh best price on tickets, you ahve to search several meta sites. ALl work a bit different and give you slightly differing prices and routes. it takes forever. I want a meta meta flight ticket search engine that works well. Many sites don't allow you to search for tickets when they are the cheapest, you ahve to give fixed dates. Other sites don't let you control your layover. ( 1 hour is perfect, 4 is the worst, and starting at 5-6 hous layover you can actually go out and see the town you happen to be in.

I think this is somethign that google can do really well, and isn't in yet.

Have you tried Kayak?

(Kayak is a client of the company Google is buying.)

No, but I will.

EDIT:
Kayak is awesome, exactly what i was looking for. The "weekend" funtion is great. Plus, you can select multiple airports for departure so you don't have to try all your dates with one aoirport then switcfh over adn try them all again with anouther.
