The Swedish search engine Entireweb developed by Marcus Andersson was launched in 1999. It looks like Entireweb still uses its own crawler and index. The Speedy Spider Robot is still active today, but the results are similar to those of Bing. The search engine is a search portal that offers a image, video and news search in addition to the web search.
