GOOOOOOGLE by far! With the plug-in even easier...but you should clear your search history often. I have ran into some weird, freakish things if I don't (unrelated topics, etc). I used to use AltaVista and occasionally I would use IE and type my words or phrases on the URL bar.
Google uses a much more sophisticated indexing and search system, heavily focused on results - I could give a more technical explanation if I understood more about it .
The other nice thing is that they are completely banner-free - the input interface has 3 fields: a text entry box, a search feild and an "I'm feeling lucky" link - a fun way to play the search lottery.
Another useful site is AskJeeves, which uses a natural language text interface - you can ask it "Where can I find replacement bolts for my Manik sidesteps?" (Answer: Call Tim at www.hondacuraworld.com) and it will usually find you an answer.
Do your own trial .. Pick a search word and type it in .. after you use your search engine go to the bottom of the screen and choose the competition. ( Most are linked together anyway ). Please post your results and opinions.
I will agree that the pop up ad's are a pain in the ____. But like junk Email .. Ya just hit the X or delete. If Its helping the advertising economy for me to hit the X well I'll do my share
I've been using this great little free application called 'PopUp Killer' for a couple of weeks -- it 'squishes' popups. I love it. You just have to set up some sites (lie this one) in your exclusion list so that it doesn't kill the popups from this site. Check it out....

"Googol" is the mathematical term for a 1 followed by 100 zeros. It's a very large number.
The software behind Google's search technology conducts a series of simultaneous calculations requiring only a fraction of a second. Traditional search engines rely heavily on how often a word appears on a web page. Google uses PageRank™ to examine the entire link structure of the web and determine which pages are most important. It then conducts hypertext-matching analysis to determine which pages are relevant to the specific search being conducted. By combining overall importance and query-specific relevance, Google is able to put the most relevant and reliable results first.
Just visited the time standard sites that were on time.gov and the software on the nist ftp site doesn't seem to be a valid link. Is there another way to do this ? My desktop clock loses about 45 seconds a day. :mad: I need something for Windows 98.
Here are the links...
I have a couple of customers in Taiwan that email me in Chinese, and it seems that I can't respond to them in Chinese. I also can't use the Russian language in email.
Do any AOL users know of a fix for this? :confused:
