    There will never be a google killer... Its just theoritically impossible, these kinds of search engines come popping out of the woodwork almost every day and as quietly as they arrive, as quietly they leave. It can't even be dubbed as a yahoo killer.

    It's a nice search engine, but a little slow, that's a huge disadvantage. Also, the results are a little confusing, placing the thumbnails next to the results. Makes me feel a little dizzy when searching something

    They do have a option to turn off the thumbshots. I like the fact its optional because even Im not a big fan of their thumbshots even though it is a good feature

    Here's an interesting search engine: Millionshort

    As the name might suggest, it returns search results with the first million hits stripped out. Not quite sure if this is useful or not - opinions please.
    Detect file changes remotely. SimpleSiteAudit is an early

    Google is not going to lose market share to just another search engine. Bigger companies have tried and failed. However, they are losing the attention of the users, now with people using social networks.

    I'm really not sure what the purpose of that is. For a lot of queries, it doesn't change anything (I was gutted to see that my website isn't stripped out so isn't considered to be in the top million sites on the internet ). It's a novel premise, but the chances are that if one of those top million sites answers your query then it's going to be a good site to look at ... those sites didn't get to be in the top million just by chance. And it's unlikely that you're going to get all that many of the top million sites returned for any query, so paging past the first few isn't going to be too big a deal if you want to look at more eclectic sites.

    That is interesting! Could be good for giving smaller businesses a chance, like in the dotcom boom.

    As for ANY search engine being a Google killer I can't see it. Google is used so much and is even a verb now in its own right. " Why don't you Google it?" .

    That engine couldn't find a lot of things anyway.

    I agree, I don't think there's ever going to be a new search engine that would or can kill Google. It has established its name and internet users will always depend on the big G to search something on the internet.
