Search engines compared, Google 4th  
Phil Bradley has updated his chart comparing major search engines. Of greatest interest, Exalead comes out on top and Google only 4th, tied with MSN. It's worth noting that Phil compared features only, he didn't conduct a qualitative analysis using sample searches. I was interested to learn that Exalead allows truncation, proximity searching, and sorting by oldest/newest. These (especially the last one) are features that I'd find useful at the moment. I must remember to give Exalead a try next time I'm searching.
