As a search engine junkie, I’m always pulling for the little guy with a unique idea. I love competition in the marketplace. Sadly none of these have any notable market share.

But if you were curious like me, I present Greenlane’s active list of search engines.

(Update – unfortunately the majority of these are offline now in 2020. In those cases, I disabled the link.)
