Yes, I thought duckduckgo was pretty good when I tried it some
time back (though they'd junked up the UI with javascript a bit
much for my taste).

I've been using the local perl-based effort blekko.com almost
exclusively for some years now-- so yeah, I guess I'm not part of
The Zeitgeist according to google.

blekko's gimmick is "slash tags" to narrow the domain of the
search, so you can do stuff like "mouse /perl".
