There are many web search tools out there; Google wasn't even the 'first'.
Sometimes a search engine can be beaten by a directory
meta-search engine condenses results from several web search engines.
I understand that there's yacy & blekko which are attempts to
make non-proprietry facilities; which should be the ultimate
goal. But just for a quick short-term 'plan B', what can I/we
I currently use Ixquick (a meta-search engine with good privacy) or Teoma
(which was better before Ask Jeeves swallowed it, but the bare-bones

OK, thanks. That seems quiet a big story.
But it's always more difficult [initially] to NOT follow the

And hope it runs on other-than debian.
