    I have found a search engine that is everybit as good as or even better than Google.com.
    I've done some test searches and I am liking the results better than google's.
    As to politics, I don't know. At least it's not Google.
    It's called WISENUT.com

    Try it.

    Thanks for linking me to popup hell. After closing 4 popups, one of them crashed my Explorer. Ick. I'll stick with Wisenut.

    Forgot about that. I run a popup killer in the background at all times...

    On my brother's network, popups die at the source.

    Ugh. They are just as vomitous as spam. Wisenut seems to be the better search engine.
    Also, I just found that they refresh the database with new content much more often than Google, making it much more timely and accurate. Meaning less search hits on sites no longer there.

    Do a search for "analog x", a great popup killer.

    You should give Copernic Agent a try. It's a standalone program that searches several engines simultaneously, and you can choose which ones, including wisenut. It does have a banner on the free version, but it's worth it.

    Google doesn't even return decent searches anymore. I'm a dogpile fan. It's a meta search, so it's a mix of all the different searches at the same time.

    Why is webferret illegal in the PRK (not that it's any surpirse that anything is illegal there)?

    Any references?

    I fyou hate popups, try using Mozilla, the open-source version of Netscape. I use it on Windows and Linux. Aside from the ability to block popups, you can also block images from specific servers, so you don't have to download banner ads, for example.

    Frodo, I'm using Mozilla under Win2K.

    How do I set it up to kill popups? :confused:

    I use InfoCaesar's PowerSearch. It's a meta searcher that's very efficient in dumping the extraneous and irrelevant. www.infocaesar.com

    Google vs. Evil
    The world's biggest, best-loved search engine owes its success to a simple rule: Don't be evil. Now the geek icon is finding that moral compromise is just the cost of doing big business.
