I posted the following message in the Dutch forum but thought it could be of use to just about anyone:



In reply to Chris\'



\"With the deluge of search engines on the \"market\", what we need now is a search engine that can find the best search engine for you\"



just go to:



http://www.startingpage.com/html/search.html



and marvel at the sheer amount of \'best search tools\', meta search engines, search web guides, portal search engines, database searches, sleuths and what have you.



Don\'t tell me anymore you can\'t find something.

Have to agree with Alexandru and John Sep 24, 2002

I was a staunch Alltheweb fan - until I discovered Google. I still think Alltheweb searches more pages, but google goes straight to the page containing the search words and that\'s what gives it the edge for me.
