Actually they are pretty oldhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mamma.com
I've did some digging on their finacial state recently,they're having problems...http://www.thehostin...com/article2109.html
But somehow they managed to buy Copernic
Which has one of the better desktop search apps
I think Mamma really suffers cause they basically have nothing up their sleave,they ignore other
browsers (firefox,Opera,etc)when it comes to tools and what not.I think the one search engine
that looks like their even trying to compete with google is ask.com.Personally i use google but
if you look here http://sp.ask.com/do.../site_features.shtml
they do look like their trying
to make a serious effort.That Binoculars Site Preview thing looks pretty neat.

Doesn't require any other software btw,like their toolbars, etc.
