  • Does anyone use the Alexa search engine/toolbar?

    Does anyone use any other search engines besides Google that they want to mention?

  • Before Google was invented I used to use Alta Vista, which is still useful at times. The first one I used was WebCrawler, which was good until AltaVista overtook it. It still exists, but last time I tried it it didn't give me much. Ask Jeeves can be good too. One problem with Google and AV is that they sometimes give you too much! Better indexing is going to be increasingly necessary.

  • I believe google has become synonymous with the word search and dominates any other search engine by far.

    Although an interesting search engine i just found was www.chacha.com. Do check that out.

  • Hey guys,

    Are you aware that Microsoft has a new search engine. Check out www.live.com. It gives very good result and the speed has impoved drastically. Try "Image" search in Live.com and its much better than Google. It has AJAX effects which you can note by moving you mouse over the images.

  • Yes, i too used Alta Vista.. but thats not too helpful as compared to Google... I use Yahoo other than Google.. apart from search engine you can also use meta search engine i.e. DogPile.com. I found it good..

  • apart from google, which is a general search engine, there are a number of very good search engines for specific needs.
    like
    demoz.org/***-bb for shareware/***
    codeproject.com for codes
    technorati.com for blog search
    wikipedia.org for information search etc.

    regards
