Why you got fed up of Google?

Doesn't it satisfy your requirement?

It is not the matter of satisfying requirements.
This is just the need for a change.

What kind of tool did you use to find other search engines?


Make visible what, without you, might perhaps never have been seen.

I use metacrawler, which (they claim) "searches the best results from the combined pool of the world's leading search engines" ... "including Google, Yahoo! Search, MSN Search, Ask Jeeves, About, MIVA, LookSmart and more."

Try as many search engines as you want, but at the end of the day you would end up using Google

Metacrawler cites its search engine sources for each result, and I would miss a lot of good information if I were only using Google. (They claim that their "metasearch technology can search 50% more of the Web than any single search engine.") Also, I find Metacrawler results to be better ordered in terms of relevance.

Occasionally, I check Google to see what "the rest of the world" gets when they search on the same keywords I'm entering, and I'm usually disappointed.

Hmmmmmm. seems like a sly way for M$ to find out specifically who is searching for what.

Ok, I think then the Search depends on whether or not the Search is satisfactory to oneself. For me Google is more than I need.
