Theres some new ones around, described as faster, smarter, more personal and more visually interesting.

Some sites, like Twine and hakia, will try to personalize searches, separating out results you would find interesting, based on your Web use. Others, like Searchme, offer iTunes-like interfaces that let users shuffle through photos and images instead of the standard list of hyperlinks. Kosmix bundles information by type -- from Twitter, from Facebook, from blogs, from the government -- to make it easier to consume.


I like google - never seem to miss what Im looking for - what do you use?
Have you tried any others?

The best search engine?

Well - they come in different sizes.

Google is best for general searches/trawling the web - and using Google hacks you can find pretty much dam near anything you want to.

But if you need an answer to a specific question then I highly recommend http://www.wolframalpha.com/

Wolfram|Alpha is a new engine and it's still in test, but certinaly add it to your bookmarks and start using it!

Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one.
