-Scott I.

Excellent replacement for the standard search module. Very flexible indexing with the ability to easily include or exclude pages or sections of a site from a full-featured admin. The search form and results are trivial to style using CSS. Support from the module developer is timely, thorough, and reflected in the next release so you know you're getting the latest features and fixes with every release.
