    Well one quick search and just like every other search aggregator, it returns many out of date links from the individual search engines cache's.
    Do the same search in google and at least 95% are current working links.

    But I don't see any good map feature or e-mail from web-fetch. If returning Google search results mixed in with other junk is what makes web-fetch good, then I'd rather have the real thing.

    It's not the same kind of thing exactly, but one search aggregator I use every so often is www.scandoo.com. It uses google amongst others, and it's particularly useful for searching for information, shall we say... off the beaten track. For security auditing purposes of course :) In any case, it scans all the results and puts traffic lights in front: green for safe, amber and red for sites with malicious or dubious content. Great for preventing your PC from becoming spyware central during your search for an extended evaluation copy of whatever.
