    Decent metasearch engines?

    I've used Dogpile for years but lately it's been getting on my nerves. When I run a search for something obscure I have to wade through a page or two of "Sponsored by:" links before I come up with anything interesting. Since I'm mildly opposed to Google (and since it doesn't really work for a lot of the stuff I care about) it's mostly out of the question. There has to be a decent, customizable metasearch engine (like Metacrawler and Dogpile used to be) still out there so help a geek out and caugh 'em up if you please.

    I just use either Google (and use filters) or EBSCO Host or JSTOR Archive, or Journalsearch. Mostly academic stuff.
