Yahoo
Ask Jeeves~ A different type of search engine. It allows you to query using regular English sentences. For example, try typing "Where can I find information about Publishers?" Instead of an exhaustive list of matches, you get a concise list of locations. You may find results sometimes erratic, however, and still prefer engines, I do. Like AltaVista, Excite, and Hotbot.
