It will take something revolutionnary to beat Google.

They break the back button, aren't up front about safe search... and they want to have lots of info about me that they can resell.

I too welcome more competition, but this isn't anything earth-shattering. I certainly will not be switching

Do you buy a new car every year in order to get the latest "features"? Are you constantly buying new computer hardware, PDAs, music players &c&c? Then, you'll probably be rushing over to a9 to get the latest gimmickry. But if you drive a car for transportation, not sport; if you buy hardware to do your work, not to earn bragging rights; then you'll probably keep on using Google because it does just what you want from a search engine -- it searches: as someone mentioned elsewhere -- quickly and reliably.

I have a two-step search process: I click the button labelled "Google" on Mozilla Personal Toolbar; I type the term and press "Enter." If I wanted to, I could make it one step by simply typing the search term in the address bar and clicking "Search" -- but I can't seem to get used to that. One extra click is not a burden.

"two-step search process"

Set Google as your default search in Mozilla. Then press [Ctrl-L] or [Cmd-L] to move to the location bar, type your search, then press the down arrow to choose "Search Google for "foo"". It's a no-step process and your hands never leave the keyboard.

my first comments on my new blog. thanks gentleman.

I agree that google rocks. I am not disputing that. I am just saying that a9 has a few neat tricks and features that make it worthy of a little praise.

and no, michael. i drive a '98 chrysler, don't have a pda, don't wear a watch and can't remember the last time i bragged about a possession.

i do agree that speed and reliability are the 2 most important features in a search engine. i fail to see how a9 doesn't do as well as google using that scorecard, though. and it adds some neat new features.

I use more than one search engine regularly. I'll add a9 to my list.

i don't use mozilla, but maybe it is time i try.

San Francisco Click

A9.com published today a San Francisco Virtual Tour.

I have a way better interactive tour where you can visit all city attractions, walk along golden gate bridge and much more. Great pictures! And it was published 2 years earlier! Check it out, be the judge:
