What search engine do you prefer?   Google?  Bing? other?

Years ago (pre google) it was Altavista because of some of the searches they offered.  I'm liking google (the company more than the search engine) less and less, but I hate Microsoft even more which keeps me away from Bing.  There are times Bing can be beneficial on a search though.

Thank you, Ken for all your years of being a moderator, member, inspiration, and friend to all.

That's a good feature!   :066:


I was searching a certain Plantronics blue tooth headset the other day using Google. Today I went to look up a celebrity at IMDb.com and what is the advertisement at the top of the page and again to the right?   Amazon.com with the same Plantronics headset!

Doesn't keep tracking info to turn over to any "inquiring" agencies either. Kinda convenient in this day and time.

That's why I clear my cache after every session.

Google.

"just Google it" is such common vernacular that bing is gonna have to pull rabbits outta somewhere to ever have a better algorithm or relevant results. there are many ways to subvert the tracking, but it honestly doesn't change my search practices what so ever. without our input, Google wouldn't be as awesome as it is.
Thanks,

The prying eyes are really starting to get annoying. you can do a search and see a site near the top just because it's in your history and cache. Makes it hard in my realm, people think their on page 1 when they really don't show up in the top 50, only because they visit their site all the time.
