Cost: Free

Comments: General purpose search engine.

Description: As the only Q&A service combining the power of search with the insight of a live user community, Ask.com’s innovative technology scours the web to find answers where they exist online, then turns to a qualified Ask.com user when they don’t. This means that if an answer to a question is published on the Web, we will find and deliver it in milliseconds, and we’ll put the answer, not a link, at the very top of the page.
