Findo is a free website to search in Google Drive, Dropbox, Gmail, Outlook, Yahoo! Mail, Facebook, and other services simultaneously. So it aggregates all the cloud storage services it supports and makes it very easy to find a particular file. Whether you have to find a presentation, email, video, image, document, PDF, attachment, link, etc., stored in a particular service, you can search for it using the keywords.
One of the fantastic features is that you can connect your multiple accounts for a single service. This makes it more useful.
The search results show file preview (an image file or any other file that can be previewed) and also lets you check where the file is stored. Moreover, you can also download any file and share it by generating the link. Although each individual cloud storage and social networking service have its own search feature, but that can help you find an item only from that particular service. Therefore, this website comes in handy, which lets you search multiple services together.
The screenshot above shows some cloud storage accounts connected by me with this website and search results.
This website is in close beta phase currently. However, you can register for early beta access and wait to get the invitation code to use this website.
Note: This website also provides its desktop app for Windows OS X. Moreover, you may also be able to connect Evernote, Box, and other accounts with its public release.

Findo gives a tough competition to similar services like Cloudo and treev, and perhaps it is better than such services because of its fantastic features. I hope users will be able to connect more services with its public release. Till then, you can register to get the early beta access.
