New(?) type of search engine.

Dennis Branch writes "A brand new type of search engine,TheIndex, www.theindex.com, has hit the scene and bills itself as "The new generation of search engines". It uses a synonym database rather than categories, which simplifies searches tremendously. Instead of looking through a long list of choices, selecting and clicking on one, then sub-selecting and sub-sub-selecting, and then hopefully finally finding what you're after, you just type in what you want." That reads like a commercial. Hope the engine doesn't suck. I typed a few searches and didn't get anywhere...
