My System Specs

Default Alternatives to Google Search?

I've done the searches (multiples of of the usual listicals show up) but I'm wondering if there are any I missed out there.


Currently using duckduckgo, and not really interested in anything being promoted by the gab community.....


What are you using?

I use either google or duckduckgo.

My boss uses Bing, but I can't stand it.

DuckDuckGo, because privacy

https://duckduckgo.com/about

StartPage, because privacy + google engine results (basicly google results, with all the tracking and bad stuff stripped out)

https://www.startpage.com/en/about-us.html


Personally, I use DuckDuckGo, and fall back to StartPage using "bangs" feature in DuckDuckGo. You can use "bangs" to use other search engines when DDG fails to find what you need. StartPage's bang is !s (and googles is !g)

Hrmmm... startpage might be worth checking if I find duckduckgo to be lacking. Thanks for the heads up.
