i like mahalo, very well done

Excellent list! I opened up quite a few of these as I was reading your post so I could look at them later. I’ve used Mahalo before – that one’s pretty good.

Another social search engine to look at is Searchles, where you can network with other users, submit content to be rated, reviewed, and shared, and search the Searchles database for content.

I like moosearch.com – it’s a very fast, intuitive multi-search engine site.

A couple interesting graphical search engines:
http://www.kartoo.com/
http://www.mooter.com
Searching for people, especially background information:
http://www.pipl.com/
That engine can be scary from a personal privacy perspective!
