Decent list of alternative search enginse from Martyn Casserly.
In the realms of online search, it’s fair to say that Google has somewhat cornered the market. This can be seen in the way people now say that they’ll ‘Google’ something when they have a question to be answered.
Google is a verb.
If you don’t want to use the all-conquering behemoth then there are a few others available.
Good list. Best choice is StartPage.
