    What are some good search engines? And search engines that have caching of web site?


    I'm looking for some good search engines other than www.google.com or www.yahoo.com or www.bing.com

    Also is google the only search engine that allow cache of web sites?

    I'm looking for some other good search engine that allow cache of web sites.

    DuckDuckGo is my favorite. Use the bang to switch to specific search engines. For an example, if DDG doesn't give you any good results, you can add !g to search via encrypted google instead, !r for reddit search, or !b for bing search. They have thousands of bangs you can use.

    There is the !cache bang, it will use Google's cache.

    For other cache search engines, there's the http://archive.org that's usually pretty good.

    I like Duckduckgo, but I'd be lying if I said I used anything but Google.

    No, I did clarify to say DDG has !cache bang that will take you to Google's cache version when you need the cache.

    There are only a few services that provide cached pages, Google and Internet Archive.org are the most popular ones. It costs a lot of money for little benefits, so no one else is going to start doing this when Google and Internet Archive are doing it.
