Good Search Engines

Google, found at, is one of the Internet's most popular search engines. It has the cachet of being both popular and critically respected. Northern Light, found at, is not as well known to the general public as Google, but has a well-deserved reputation among professional researchers. Altavista, found at, is one of the better standard search engines. Until recently it was attempting to be an all-things-to-all-people portal, but they have returned to being primarily a search engine. All The Web, found at, came in second in a recent survey of search engine size.
