Dr Elwyn Jenkins has developed Smoogle - The Smart Googler's News, Views and Tools about online search Google™ is a trademark of Google Inc. This website is not affiliated with Google Inc.
He has a great Guide to Meta Search Engines listing several and reviewing each of them.
"Many people use one search engine, Google, and do not wander to any other. I know what you are thinking. Google gives such good results, why would I bother using any other tool? The web is a big place -- much larger than the 3 billion or so pages that Google Indexes. No one really knows how large it might even be 8 billion pages. Each search engine has its own strengths and weaknesses."
I played around with these:
dugdugi, kartoo (my personal favorite), ez2find
Not being much of a techie myself, kartoo appeals to me with it's playful Genie who floats around while the search is going on. I love the roll over buttons and text pop ups.
For now Google is the easiest search engines for me to use, probably just because I am use to it. I have to say that Genie is pretty cute and as I said before, I like the roll over action on the buttons.
