is shuffling to the deadpool

Logo: AllTheWeb
Google stomps out one more competitor.

My second favorite search engine is going to disappear. I began using back in 1999, before I used Google. I liked its simple user interface and its huge index. I think that it was located in Europe. Once I began using Google, I’d still use AllTheWeb as my primary search engine. As Google’s index and services exploded in size, I demoted AllTheWeb to the role of my secondary search engine.

Now, Yahoo (AllTheWeb’s owner since c 2004) has posted this notice on AllTheWeb’s home page:

Yahoo! will be closing AlltheWeb on April 4, 2011, as we focus on other features to improve your search experience. Starting on April 4, 2011, will redirect to Yahoo! Search at Thanks for your understanding.

It’s sad to see Google’s competitors shlepping off to the deadpool, because it’s one less alternative for everyone.
