So here we are… Yahoo! owns Inktomi, AskJeeves owns Teoma and Overture owns AltaVista and FAST. This is good because Google needs competitors; Google is increasingly bad at finding what I need and Google is becoming far too powerful. Or is everyone just doing a land grab before Google’s inevitable IPO when they could generate enough cash to buy all the other search engines?
Along these lines, I wish Apple would add other search engines to the Google bar in Safari.
