    Does the job nicely, thankyou

    Excellent. I've already switched my default search engine and I must say it works a treat. Publicise this as widely as possible, I say.

    Interesting

    I like it. As a result of quick ixquick of me, I found out that I signed the US declaration of independence. Never knew that.

    Although it looks good, I just don't see it catching on.

    How does it differ from Scroogle?

    I'll give this a try - up to now I've been using Scroogle (which *does* have a nice ring to it, compared to ixquick), but I'll be interested to see how this compares.

    It differs from Scroogle in that Scroogle is useful, because it just returns Google searches. Ixquick is useless, because it returns a mashed up list of results from all of the inferior search engines, and does not search Google at all.

    Seems pretty damn good to me. My new search provider.
