    I am interested in looking at search engines that are really not in the main stream as such, but do a fine job for most surfers............... any thoughts :)

    My personal favorite is DogPile, mainly because it's a multi-engine searcher -- uses Google plus several others. It used to display a separate results list for each engine, but they've cleaned it up recently so you now get a single "master" list sorted by pertinence. Still some duplicates, but not nearly as many as before.

    Thanks all :) .....i knew of most of those....just wondering if there was something i was missing. Saw some new ones that i will use( thanks again Adrian)...
    there was was one in particular i hoped to see listed, in order to test drive, but it was not listed....it is a multi engine and begins with Cop...... anyone know :doubt:
    BTW... a few months i was reading something about one or two state of the art engines in developement....anyone know anything about this and where the projects might be now?.....Thanks again all.....anything other then Google :mad:
    and to think once upon a time when it was unknown i sang it's praises.

    OK-I disagree about using Ask Jeeves. AJ is getting into the big time spyware business. AskJeeves has merged w another co. and now runs MyWebSearch Bar, MyWay.com, MyWebSearch.com MySearch.com, and all their ugly cousins (see, e.g., www.websearchu.com/AskJeeves.shtml
    or http://searchenginewatch.com/search...cle.php/3337511) which are BHOs and hijackers. AskJeeves also runs MaxOnLine, which says at http://www.maxonline.com/direct_mar...egistration.php that it's products allow "direct marketers to acquire permission-based information from a consumer during the registration process on the MaxOnline Network of partner websites" a/k/a "steal private information in confusing adware click-thru's and sell victims' e-mail addresses to spammers." There are hundreds of web sites where users complain about the difficulty of removing AskJeeves properties.

    Perhaps a more descriptive name for their service would be "Ask Thieves"

    Try google or yahoo, they are my two favourites. I get most of my images from google. I just do a google image search and i've many pictures at my fingertips.
