In case you haven't heard of Vivisimo, it is very different than Google and has many advantages. Try it! Here's the link:

And here's a CNN article on it and Grokker:

Check out the results on my search on "Tomb Raider" - note how quickly you can discover tombraiderchronicles.com :D :

Looks pretty good, altho Google claim to have referenced 3.5billion web pages.

3.5 billion? That's it? http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif

I like how Vivisimo gives results in categories. Fewer sponsored links too. I bet the other search engines will be doing similar things soon. And Grokker is especially cool with the graphical, hierarchical representations of categories within categories. Futuristic Mon! :cool:
