    Has anyone tried the metasearch engine qrobe.it &/or TAM - The Answering Machine?

    With recent developments concerning the possible demise of some search engines, including DDG, I am wondering about replacement engines. Qrobe.it seems to be an interesting contender. It has a clean simple homepage, appears to yield good results & has WOT enabled.

    Has anyone tried qrobe or TAM for any length of time?

    I am also looking for DDG alternatives for the same reason as you, and gave also stumble to qrobe.it. Just want you to know that for qrobe.it to work, scripting and referrers must be enabled. :D

    Yes, I'd be a bit concerned if the Duck couldn't keep its head above water & eventually drowned. :'(

    At least there is a https version.

    I decided to give qrobe.it a try and decided to make it my primary search engine. Since it's using google, it actually produced more accurate results that DDG :D.

    Yes, I thought that it was surprisingly good with search results.
