Anybody ever seen a better advanced search?
Wow, that is really cool. I've been using their advanced search recently, and found it very good.
I love the customization - this imho is what a tech company with a search engine should do - make their product better :)
I have to admit that is pretty impressive.
>>make their product better
no kidding, looks fairly powerful.

As displayed on the index page. Can this be right? Getting quite a bit a irrelevantness in the SERPS.
IP filter is nice on that. Should allow you to have a favorite list if you have cookies turned on so you can keep your filter list :P

The file type inclusion/exclusion selection is almost exactly what I suggested in the most recent feedback thread started here by GoogleGuy. Looks like the competition is watching... ;)
As far as I am concerned, alltheweb is the only serious alternative to Google/ODP at the moment, and their advanced search features contribute a lot to that fact.
Go to surfwax.com and do a search and the click on the maginfying glasses to see all the features offered.

Absolutely. Most users don't use advanced search options anyway. But it's very good for those users who want an advanced search option.
Sadly, most users don't get to see ATW anyway.... since it's only promoted as a showcase and a R&D sandbox.
Debriefing.com used to have the best advanced search but when the site was sold, IQuick changed it. Now it has little value.

I did one once. I was looking for a pair of matching socks.
