January 2003 - The SearchEngineWatch web site awards its "best of" in various search related categories. Some old names are on the list but there are some new and interesting search tools.

Interesting Fact

When you click the search button in your browser - especially Netscape Navigator - you'll go to special miniature versions of selected search tools. These mini-versions aren't as powerful or as comprehensive as the real search engines. Search results from the browser version aren't the same as results from the original , full-sized search engines. The same is true when you search from a directory such as AOL's portal. User beware.
