Thanks for your feedback.Is your disenchantment with Google related to the search engine as a whole or the Google Scholar offering? I follow a couple of researchy areas like nanotechnology, biotech,and drug discovery. I personally find Google Scholar to be helpful when I'm trying to hunt up a journal article and don't want to scroll past a bunch of trade-book articles and press releases. I'd like a little tighter time discrimination, but otherwise I think it works pretty well. If you have another tool you think works better, I'd welcome the recommendation. Tx, K

I came to this piece looking for an UNBIASED search engine for engineers. Came away disappointed. Google has become next to useless in the past two or three years. You know things are grim when you look for an IC part number and the datasheet FROM THE MANUFACTURER turns up on page 7 or 8. That makes datasheets.com SPAM, in my book.

It has been a while since I did any detailed web searching, so I greatly appreciate your list. Mostly, I use Bing and have found it very useful. Thanks
