Alternative Search Engines?

Guest Author

ALT DESCR

Cuil
today launched to much attention, not all positive;
then
Joyce Pointed me to SearchMe,
and that prompted a pass through alternative search engines, collected below searching on "GlassFish".

Of that batch, I agree with Joyce and I find
SearchMe
to be the most interesting one, although Google is still the most accurate.


Sorted alphabetically:

Altavista


Ask.COM


Cuil


IceRocket


LiveSearch


PowerSet (only Wikipedia)


SearchMe


Yahoo

Any missing engines? Which do you like the best?

    On a slightly different direction, the "search engine" that is changing most the way I use google is the embedded search on visited pages in FireFox. I used to use Google as a "memory aid", now I can more quickly and accurately just do the search in the Location Bar. Del.icio.us add-on tries to help with this type of thing but the implementation is lacking, but this general direction - through individuals or augmented through a group - seems very interesting. - eduard/o

    My favorite during my teen years was Altavista. Bad decision destroyed it and now it's only another Yahoo search engine.

    I use Google from the last 3 years
