  1. Well all seems to fine to be except cuil. Cuil is kid of fizzed out as what they projects was hardly different from google. Their categorization of results is more of taxonomy which is not that useful for the user. But i am kind of fan of kosmix also. some more engines are listed in part 1 of and part 2 of this series.
