Jubii is the Danish part of Lycos. Two years ago they were effectively the largest Danish SE, nowadays they have shifted focus to become more of a portal, but they still do search (and PFI).

I was actually not aware that Jubii was going back to FDIM. I'm happy that they did though, but I'm amazed that 852.567 uniques a week doesn't produce more search traffic than it actually does.
It's very much in line with the fact that they are becoming more of a portal than a search engine.
Yeah, still a rather hefty price tag tho ;)
Can't blame you for that, their departure was kinda loud :) Also, very few knew. I'm not sure if this will mean anything for the search part of their business though - although it makes it easier to justify the PFI price level.
Perhaps the Jubii change of focus to portal-services was a wise decision after all, as they can't really compete with Google on "raw" search?
