I believe Mamma doesn't log anything - http://www.mamma.com/ That ones pretty good...

MysteryFCM could probably provide you with more when he comes on. :wink:

Alas, all search engines/meta-search engines, log information about you when you use the services they provide. However, in the case of most, this is nothing more than your IP address, where you came from, and the term you searched for.

The best one's IMHO are;

Exalead - http://www.exalead.com
Mamma - http://www.mamma.com

Dogpile used to be good until they started bombarding the results with "sponsored results"

Thx. I had a look at the exalead but on most searchs it says down for maintenance???

What it did show looked good tho i like the preview page of the website with the search result. May try it at a later date when it works proper.

Whoa, you would not believe the flashback right here!

Back in like 1999 (I was 9 years old !) I found mamma and started using it, but I forgot the URL and I had never found it again! Thanks!!
