More at AlltheWeb

It is good to see AlltheWeb still innovating despite being acquired by Overture. New today are several small but useful features:

  1. Dictionary look-up: just like at Google, search words on a results page after the number of results are hot links to a dictionary look-up at
  2. New search spy: See the last 10 queries (presumably censored)
  3. New shortcut keys can be turned on for use at AlltheWeb for going back to the home page, switching to the multimedia databases, and more.
  4. Calculator: this may have been around for a while, but try a math query like 13*944 to get an answer and a list of functions.
