Small General-Purpose Web Engines

by , Comments

The developers of small general-purpose web engines continue to impress with their innovative spirit.

It's a good idea to keep an eye on what these types of companies are up to. Why? We're all aware of the fact that some of today's most popular general-purpose web engines started very small in garages and dorm rooms.

Here are just a few examples:

+ Gigablast (Matt Wells, developer)
Every result includes a direct link to The Wayback Machine. A real time saver!

+ FyberSearch (Nathan Enns, developer)
FyberSearch offers numerous easy to use search options and limits. I just noticed that every url on a serp contains a hyperlink to Michael Fagan's URLinfo that Chris recently wrote about. FyberSearch also offers several "subject focused" databases that provide business, government, science, and other types of material.

+ ObjectsSearch
ObjectsSearch powered with Nutch technology is now offering clustered results and offering several "specialty" databases including image search. They're also making a Web APIs service (beta) available.
