I doubt I ever used Glimpse, the first search engine that I connected
to Interchange was Swish.

Solr is definitely worth to use for searches in your web shop
(unless you have very few items), it is really fast even on
big databases and the results are better.

Together with filters and search suggestions via Ajax makes it
really useful.

There is similar software around, like Elastic Search, which provides
about the same features.

Give it a try - it needs more work to set it up but it is definitely
worth it.
