I don't claim it to be superior, but I frequently use www.go2net.com
<http://www.go2net.com> - another meta search engine.

Yahoo! is a pretty weak contender, though it's still very
popular.

I often use www.dogpile.com (a meta search) these days, but I'm
not sure it's always time effective. It lists the top 10 hits
from about 8 or 10 other search services. It takes quite a
while to skim through the the results.

What search engines or meta search engines do tech writers favor
these days?
