Comparing word frequencies on Internet

ISTR that you could compare the frequency of occurrence of certain words on the internet. (I also STR wee stick men fighting over them but that may have been a hallucination.)

Please could someone show me how to compare word frequencies using a browser (wee stick men optional)?

It sounds like you're talking about word clouds.

Something like this?

Ah, yes! googlefight is the one I had in mind, and the other suggestions will come in useful for something else too. Thanks to all who responded.

I just tried psionic vs syzygy. Strangely enough, each had a score of zero.

Maybe it's broken. Nature vs Nurture also ended in 0-0
