Search Engine List (Please, Use the Search Engine List from Wikipedia! Death-sigh... as in Braveheart (1995, also Starring Mel Gibson.).)

Search Engine List

This information is presented in the light of abuse of websites like SearchEngineList.org, .net and .com. These sites have not maintained the information responsibility toward the public despite their names. Therefore, this webpage provides commercial disinterest and uncompromising delivery of information. Thus, this information available is true to the public, even in the programming sense because the html code that's supplied is so simple and all code can be reviewed and downloaded. I hope you get to enjoy it as one should. Cheers!

The information that's presented is heavily stripped, with little or no pictures and no extra words or other that may obstruct the clarity of information that I like to present straight! Good?

The "mirroring" (with or without minor changes) starts below.

This is a list about search engines, including web search engines, selection-based search engines, metasearch engines, desktop search tools, and web portals and vertical market websites that have a search facility for online databases.

The "mirroring" (with or without minor changes) ends above.

If you want to add a search engine as I update it from the Wikip. page, you can either contact me directly by these emails or make an effort toward Wikipedia:
Email - [email-1]
Email - terjelea (at) gmail.com
Email - [email-2]
Email - [email-3]
Note: it's important that the search engine has what it needs and that it's results are of any use.
