Have you tried Google's big new competitor yet?  I ran a few searches, and was surprised at the different stuff I got.  Cuil claims it searches a lot more pages than Google, and relies a lot less on popularity (and, as Mike Dorf notes, it's really unclear that the latter thing is a good thing).  I note, however that that Cuil has adopted the idea of the super simple search page.  We like competition at the Glom, and so we wish the best to Cuil and its campaign to find a place next to a corporation that is both smart and a poster child for network effects.  I gather that the backers of Cuil (and Mahalo, and so on), think that those effects ain't nothing but numbers.
