Has FAST relevancy results improved lately?
Anybody else noticed?

To my eyes, their results have changed and the results are coming in with greater relevance. For instance, FAST can now accurately handle a basic company name query, as well as a personal homepage query. Furthermore, their database is pretty deep. That is, they're indexing places that other se's, including google, haven't. I find this exciting.

Well Fast has T-Online, undisputed #1 web property, also Lycos.de.
But nonewithstanding the big Goorilla outgrows all other referrals combined.

>they're indexing places that other se's, including google, haven't.
FAST has a large and hungry spider army. They are like ants - all over the place.

>Relevancy
Well ATW advanced search is my default SE. I go there to FIND stuff.
