Google
Claims to have the largest index on the web. Considered by many to be the fastest and the most accurate. You can use Google to search newsgroups as well, since they took over the newsgroup archives from Deja News. We also like their downloadable toolbar, which plugs into Internet Explorer and gives you an instant search engine (better than Explorer's default search function

Altavista
One of the largest on the Web. "Simple" and "Advanced" modes of use. Runs complex queries. Searches Newsgroups as well as Web sites. The UK version is available at http://uk.altavista.com/, but the main site is:
http://www.altavista.com Altavista is well known for its hilarious (unintentionally) Babel Fish page translator!

Yahoo
A very large searchable directory. All submissions made manually, so quality of information is good. Also has links into Google. Has a number of other services, such as Yahoo Groups (a club facility)
http://www.yahoo.com
Hotbot
Generates many search hits, so you will need to define your search carefully. Can also search newsgroups.

Lycos
One of the oldest, and still vast - but a bit slow. OK for simple searches. Use 'Custom search' for more advanced searching. Now owns HotBot
