FindForward is another search engine that's come to my attention. The interesting thing with this one is the sheer variety of different ways that it allows you to search for information. It essentially uses the Google database (and is run using a Google API) but you can do:
Normal web search
Only English
Image Direct
Ask Question
Print
Tags
Personal information
'Things' (whatever they are!)
Old pages
Randomize

... and a bunch of other things. It's been created by Philipp Lenssen, who I have a lot of time for. It's an interesting approach - the main downside is that it can take quite some time to get an answer onto the screen, and sometimes it says it hasn't found any information and then displays answers for you. However, it's worth taking a look at.
