Hotbot seems to have changed the titles of the searches from Inktomi, Fast, Google and Teoma to Hotbot, Lycos, Google and Ask Jeeves.
Thought that was interesting.

Just noticed this now, I know Jeeves is powered by Teoma, but is Hotbot and Lycos powered by Fast and Inktomi or has one of them been dropped?

I missed the logos for Inktomi and Fast at the end of the serps.
I can see why they might want to promote their own brands more but thought it was clearer where the results were coming from when the provider was listed at the top.

Hotbot is so cool lately. I use Google and Hotbot (for Ink) results. I remember the old Hotbot - not even worth using it. Good on em for getting the new look right BUT biggest problem Hotbot has has over the last few months ive seen is the popups which seem to get stuck so every new search generates a new popup for a casino...not very nice but dont see that problem anymore.

Yeah, Hotbot is Inktomi and Lycos is Fast.
