Blekko looks like a very good search engine.

Thanks Gill.  At the moment I'm using Chrome on this computer whereas I use Avant at home.  Mrs Clive uses Firefox on her laptop but I'm not too keen.  Blekko looks quite interesting and I would certainly give it a whirl on this machine.

It's not a browser, Clive, just a search engine.  :)

It sounds as if you've got some means of evaluating search engines, Sam.  What is it?

i was just searching for obscure pages.

Also simply it works on hashtags... will take ages for them to properly index.

However it works, if it grows up to be an alternative to Google, I shall be very happy.  I'm fed up with Google using my search queries to target advertising at me.  It's sinister.

What with the street maps data theft issue, it seems Google are less trustworthy than ever now.
