[Bigass Links]

Once you understand the glory of Google, any other search engine, web index or personal links page becomes redundant. Google is the last major search engine to be free of commercial taint (they sell ads, but those sales aren't allowed to interfere with the search functions), and uses the one and only Open Directory Project as the basis for its Directory. Google includes a massive archive of Usenet and other public discussion resources, too. There simply isn't another search engine that can touch it on any score.

But if you just find browsing bookmarks fun, welcome to mine.
