Mirago, the Brithish based search engine

Advantages: UK based results of searches
Disadvantages: the first page.
THe pure joy of not having to look at reams of USA based Interent Sites is what makes Mirago one of my favourite search engines.
The front page leaves a lot to be desired, with only a tiny search window, low down on the left-hand side of the screen.
However, things get considerably more interesting when it returns your first search results.
It lists the most relevant pages first and it is nearly always right on the beam. Making the list of sites returned even easier to view, there is a tick-box which gives you only one page per site, this simplifies things and lets you get to the most interesting sites that much quicker.
Even the poor first page has one thing in its favour and that is the facility to search shopping/sports and other specialists pages first and fast.
