Re: a search engine I haven't seen mentioned
The Fast search engine, for which alltheweb.com is the demonstration engine,
is a major player. It is now owned by Yahoo/Overture, and powers a number of
other engines, including Lycos. It also provides some backfill for Espotting
in the UK and is well established in Europe.
Generally, the results are comparable to Google's in terms of quality, IMHO.
They use a progressive weekly update system to refresh chunks of the
