New, uses Vivisimo. Clusty queries results from Looksmart, Lycos, MSN, Open Directory, Teoma, Gigablast, and Wisenut. Excellent starting point for the Wikipedia.


New. Searches Google (via BBCi) and AltaVista. Quite slow, but very powerful and intelligent. It's a demonstration of new search technology.


Pretty good with a clean results page. No Google, but that's the norm these days.

Surfwax - Uses 11 engines, but not Google, Direct Hit, or Looksmart. Gives unique info on pages found such as number of links, images, words etc. Allows you to focus on keywords, to find a more precise meaning. Heavy use of Javascript. Best suited to serious researching of rare topics

Vivisimo - Another javascript heavy engine. Sorts results into folders in the same manner as Northern Light, but with better results. Was only using AltaVista, Yahoo, Webcrawler, Fast, Open Directory, Lycos, Excite and MSN when we last checked. Best suited to serious researching of rare topics
