Webcrawler... Do you remember Webcrawler? Webcrawler was the first search engine to provide full text search. Originally an actual search engine, with its own database, Webcrawler went through a number of acquisitions, and is currently relegated to duty as a metasearch engine, plugging Yahoo and Google results, and not very effectively. Ads are not clearly differentiated from results, and they appear at the beginning and the end of results. For those of of you who may not have been around or aware at the time, Webcrawler was once in a position similar to Google, in that it was the only effective search engine. No more.
