“How do you find a new search engine if all you know is Google? Typing “search engine” into the usual box might lead you to Microsoft’s newly launched Bing, the combined search at Dogpile, or the former king of search, Altavista.

Drop by Wired for a look at some interesting search sites that are neither Google nor that new one from Microsoft. Some are simply a different twist, such as Good Search which donates money every time you search to ChaCha which is much faster than Google on a mobile device. Others are more specific, like IceRocket, OneRiot, Scoopler and Collecta all of which search Twitter, blog posts and news stories. For the traveller there is Voyij and for the commuter Parkingspots.com will probably be a favourite. There are plenty of others in the full story.
