Well, it seems that Scott's Feedster is no longer alone. Dave Sifry's Technorati is now offering full-text search and he's already integrated it into the Technorati API. Read the full announcement on his blog.

For what it's worth, I use both services. They're great. I'm a paid subscriber of Technorati and I'm going be helping Scott out with a bit of stuff on Feedster sometime soon.

Keep up the great work guys...

Technorati has a much bigger reach correct? And it doesn't just work RSS so it is has more to chew on--very cool. I haven't used technorati for anything more than link cosmos, but it does that extremely well. In any event we (webloggers) have the best search around.

I'm not so sure about Technorati's reach. Most of the blogs that link to my blog never show up in my site's Link Cosmos. They're mainstream blogs, I don't know why Technorati doesn't see them.

Well far be it from me to talk about unannounced plans but let's just say that a) I'm very aware of this and b) there will be a response.

You know, Waypath has been around longer than both Feedster and Technorati.
