An anonymous reader wrote in to say "It seems that there's a new company out there called Fast Search and Transfer which is competing with Inktomi. They have a demo online at www.alltheweb.com and their engine seems to be ultra-fast. News about this is available here. Try out the demo, it is awesome what these guys have done." It is fast, but so far I've not had as good luck searching as with other engines. And the speed is probably largely due to the sparse HTML. But its not bad.
