GigaBlast is a web search engine founded in 2000. In 2015, it claimed to have indexed over 12 billion web pages, and received billions queries per month.
In 2003, The New York Times columnist Lee Dembart stated that "Gigablast has its adherents", but opined that Google is "head and shoulders" above it, and adds that Google's search results are more complete.

Google is indispensable to anyone who uses the Internet. It isn't the only search engine — Teoma has its adherents, as does Gigablast — but Google is head and shoulders above the others.
