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.

How big is fast in Germany?
And what SE is the biggest there (google)?

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.
