News search engine Congoo has launched in beta. The site grants access to over 300 premium and subscription news sites, including the Wall Street Journal, Atlanta Journal-Constitution, and Encyclopedia Britannica Online. Users are allowed to download several articles from Congoo's partner sites per month for free.
The catch is that it utilizes a browser toolbar (which is SO web 1.0) to authenticate for the premium content. It might be worth it to have on hand in IE if you use Firefox as your primary browser.
