Unpublished Technical Report, AT&T Bell Laboratories.

This report lists the most widely used commercial search engines for organizing World Wide Web sites on the internet. A server running one of these engines gives access to a number of document databases via simple queries in natural language. We include marketing information, pricing, contact names of sales representatives and AT&T users. We provide a feature glossary.

Keywords: search engine, commercial search engine, topic search, World Wide Web, HTML, information agents, security, query, database, electronic library, indexing, information retrieval.
