Google has been in the news a lot recently, both being accused of producing mediocre, constantly beta, products (see Google Video), and folding to pressure by governments. While they’re fighting the US government to not release search results, they are complying with censorship rules imposed by the Chinese government. Whether you like Google or not, here’s an alternative search engine that I really like:
Clusty is a metasearch engine developed by VivÃsimo which offers clusters of results. Clusty adds new features and a new interface to the previous Vivisimo clustering web metasearch. Different tabs also offer metasearches for news, jobs in partnership with Indeed, U.S. government info, pet owner info and blogs. Special tabs can be added to search eBay, Wikipedia, or Slashdot. Customized tabs allow users to select sources for their own metasearch to create personalized tabs.
