    Best Search Engine?

    Favourite search engines anyone?

    My personal favourite is www.google.com

    Fast, Effective, Well Designed, Not too cluttered with 'Buy this!' links and stuff... Not over-commercialised, in my opinion.

    Re: no question about it

    Google is the best, handles boolean searches well, no crap like you said, and they run Linux and FreeBSD!!!
    Know this..., you may not by thyself in pride claim the Mantle of Wizardry; that way lies only Bogosity without End.

    Rather must you Become, and Become, and Become, until Hackers respect thy Power, and other Wizards hail thee as a Brother or Sister in Wisdom, and you wake up and realize that the Mantle hath lain unknown upon thy Shoulders since you knew not when.

    Google!

    I used to use IXQuick, it searches top ten stuff. But Google is a lot better, and faster, plus it comes as a default with the Opera browser.
    Why am I still here?

    www.altavista.com is ok too.

    Yep, Google rules. Researchville is also good, it's a meta search engine, and it's possible to get the results of each engine (8) in its own window. It also has got different kind of directories and listings of those & news sites & other things. Worth of checking.
    Ask Jeeves also sometimes finds something.

    Search Engine Watch is a site dedicated to (surprisingly!) search engines. Tips, listings, resources, reviews.

    And finally: Google Directory of search engines.

    Question

    Yahoo is *very* slow... and the whole Yahoo site takes forever to actually provide you with anything useful
