OpenFind's English-language interface is down with an "Under Reconstruction" message. The Chinese and Taiwanese versions still work for Chinese searchers. My OpenFind review reflects how it used to work. Their database had not been updated for a long time, so we can hope than when they relaunch it will be fresher and more robust.
OpenFind is a new search engine in beta. It claims a 3.5 billion record database, but it includes many blanks and duplicates such as www.searchengineshowdown.com and searchengineshowdown.com. Also, while phrase searching sometimes works, it is not dependable. On at least one search, it found my two terms adjacent but in the opposite order. It is very much a beta product with no documentation, but it does have some very interesting features such as sorting by date and size, and a proxy link that highlights search text in the actual page.
