For those of you who don't know, grub is a distributed internet crawler that is indexing the internet and working towards an almost realtime index of all the pages combined with a search engine. Think about it, a search with no dead links and no out-of-date pages! Grub is the way to go." It sounds like a cool hybrid of client- and server-side information (a crawler works from your computer, with updated findings sent to a central repository) and all GPL'd. If grub outperforms Google, I'll be happy as a google-using clam -- but unless they have google's logic and caching, that is a very tall order. A better search engine is a pleasant dream though.
