Oh. I thought it was my ISP that was having problems. Funny how I gauge my ISP's performance by whether or not I can bring up google.

So very true. I was reduced to using Excite today, and apart from the overly polluted screen the quality of results were better than I was expecting. I also appreciate the "intelligent" hints of further filtration words.

Excite is still around? Wow.

I remember that back in the day InfoSeek was the best for a while, until they became Go.com and got watered down.
