Too bad ixquick's search results suck.
Not as much as the other search engines but they're far away from google's.

A plus to using ixquick compared to SEs like is that they are ssl capable so you can use so nobody but them sees your search queries.

"ICANN does not tolerate terrorists operating illegally on its Internet," the organization said in a statement. "Since we first learned of the LTTE's content piracy, we have been actively pursuing a number of technical alternatives to halt the website. We are clear in our resolve to ending this terrorist organisation's unauthorised use of our Internet.""
