This one was brought to my attention but I haven't had a chance to try it out yet. If any of you net searchers do, please report back on its quality!

I just tried this new search engine on some info I have been looking for and then compared it with Google. Putting information in, Google had 8 hits to allthewebs 5 hits. Google also showed me how each word and phrase was used. Alltheweb did not. I tried with other information to search for and had similar results. I, personally, found google had more useful information that was easier to use.

Allo Angel,

Did alltheweb's 5 hits all appear in Google or were some different?

Good question Bel! I took a second look, side by side. Four of the five hits on alltheweb were in Google, but one was not! So, in consideration, if you are looking for something in detail, and have but a few hits on Google, which IMHO is clearer and easier to use, you may get a new hit or two using this search engine.
