What features do u seek in the search engine of the future?

With ever expanding world wide web, search engines are key elements in finding information we need on time. How do you imagine the perfect search engine of the future? How smart do you want it to be? How are you concerned about privacy of users?

I'm a student majoring in Computer Science, and recently started developing a search engine, which I expect to outperform all existing search engines in terms of efficiency and smartness. I hope that this conversation will help me to make my search engine one step closer to the search engine of the future.

All answers are appreciated.
Thank you.

    May 10 2012: What features do 'u' seek? I don't know. Where are all these 'u's anyway, and do they have abilities built into their serifs that allow them to type into search engines? Are Garamond 'u's more handy with keyboards than Gill Sans 'u's? Personally I'd hope search engines analyse the input and dumb down their results according to the care with which the search term has been phrased, to best suit the needs of the user.
