Beyond Google

Here are a list of new search engines that are popping up across the Web to make searches faster, smarter, more personal and more visually interesting. Unlike Google, where anyone with access to an Internet-connected computer can use the search tool, a few of these newer search engines require a free subscription before searching can begin, at least while still in BETA.

1) Twine

2) Kosmix
This search tool acts like a ‘mash up’ site with which you can have selected text inserted on your page and re-arrange your page to fit your needs.

3) Wolfram Alpha
“You enter your question or calculation, and Wolfram|Alpha uses its built-in algorithms and growing collection of data to compute the answer.”

5) Cuil
Cuil searches for and ranks pages based on their content and relevance.

6) Scoopler

“We aggregate and organize content being shared on the internet as it happens, like eye-witness reports of breaking news, photos and videos from big events, and links to the hottest memes of the day.’

7) OneRiot

8) Tweetmeme
Both ‘OneRiot’ and ‘Tweetmeme” launched new or updated real-time searches recently.
