Here are some of the major search engines in common use on the web...
|Altavista||also includes language translation services.|
|Askjeeves||Handles "Free text" questions|
|Dejanews||now part of google|
|Very popular, and used as the core of many other search engine sites.|
|Searches by Google, but with extra facilities for managing the results of your search. These are not obvious until you hover the mouse over a results link. Probably more useful if you are seriously researching a complex project than casual queries.|
|NorthernLight||Divides your search results up into subject-based folders on screen, allowing you to identify the ones most relevant to you more easily.|
|Teoma||Calculates "relevance" differently from others - may help if other engines are finding too many irrelevant sites for your query.|
|Vivisimo||Sorts results into categories, so that you waste less time looking at "wrong" meanings of the words you entered.|
|Yahoo||Uses Google as search core|
|uk.Yahoo||UK & Eire section|
