I like this subject—search engines— Thanks to Jnana Hodson for the reblog. He is one of my favorite writers. I did comment, and feel inclined and encouraged to write a blog about search engines here on my own blog, Sometimes; coming soon.
Always a contrarian with an aversion to Big Brother, I’ve been open to alternatives to Google for online research. Still, it seems to come up with the broadest results.
Lately, though, I’ve been relying on DuckDuckGo (https://duckduckgo.com/) as an alternative, largely on its promises to keep my wanderings more private. What I am finding interesting is the fact that it comes up with a different swath of results than Google does.
Yes, I still turn to Google, no apologies, but I do like getting off the freeway, if you know what I mean.
I am curious about other search engines other folks are using – and why.
What are your search engine preferences?
