    It's Fluid Dynamics Search Engine by www.xav.com. It's a fantastic search engine, very configurable and hackable. You can use it on your own domain or for wider searches across many sites.

    There's a cost to licence it. I can't remember how much but it was quite reasonable.

    The only thing is that it has a limit of around 10,000 pages. Although that sounds like plenty, I've run up against this limit on a couple of websites. In fact it's only a matter of time before it affects mediacollege.com - we're close to 3000 at the moment.

    As long as you're sure you'll never have that many pages to worry about, I do recommend it.
