Suchfibel an excellent German language
guide to searching in the Net.
www.searchenginewatch.com The corresponding English language site - all you ever wanted to know about search engines, and then some more.
CAUTION: If you only enter Carcano as a single search
term in any search engine, you will likely be drowned in an avalanche
of webpages about the famous Carcano Theatre, Italian printing shops with the
owner's name of Carcano and the JFK assassination. Try to combine search terms
such as Carcano rifle(s), Carcano carbine(s), or Carcano
ammo, or to exclude words like "kennedy" and "teatro" with the
SCOTT'S INTERNET HOTLIST. Outdated, but still useful.
Virgilio, good Italian search engine.
Shinyseek, mediocre Italian search engine
web.de, German search engine
