Why is PISCES better?

PISCES Search EnginePISCES is fast, proven, and flexible. PISCES ranks information based upon three factors: the number of unique query terms in a document, automatic term weighting based on a standard term frequency – inverse document frequency (TfIdf) algorithm, and proximity weighting. These three factors can be weighted in their effect on the final ranking and custom algorithms can be crafted to optimize searching unique collections. A retrieval language is used where reserved words are preceded by an ‘at’ (@) sign. With PISCES, you can change the “Stop Word” list and synonym dictionary to improve recall and relevance.
