Ixquick - one of the best Meta Search Engines - try it from here. It doesn't overwhelm you with thousands of results - it just selects results from the top 10 of a dozen or so search engines.

Profusion
Powered by Intelliseek, it gives you a relevance score, and the search engines in which it found the results. You can also sign up to be alerted when a page changes. Neat! You can also access content in "Invisible Web Sites" (e.g. encyclopaedias, specialised web directories etc.)

Ask (aka Ask Jeeves)
Allows you to search using "proper English" (e.g. "How do I make electronic books?". Present the information both in conventional search engine format, and also suggests answers to variations of your question.

Metacrawler
Multiple searches of Altavista, Excite, Infoseek, Lycos, Webcrawler and Yahoo. Good, and fast. One of the first Meta Search Engines

Dogpile
Part of the Infospace network, I think. Results come from a good cross-section of search engines, and seems to be fairly accurate and quick.
