Google's unlike anything we've seen come and go ... They're smart, they're committed, they have nearly unlimited cash to back them up and they're after your [meaning anyone who's reading's] traffic.
Don't make the mistake of underestimating them...
As far as another search engine coming along goes, who, besides M$ has deep enough pockets to even come close to the quality and accuracy they provide? Facebook, Apple, who else? There's only a handful of companies, at the most, and they're all Years behind where Google is now as far as development goes...
"They're smart" - That's debatable.
"they're committed" - committed to what?
"quality and accuracy" - are you kidding?
Their shareholders might think they're smart, but I[as a user] think their [search engine]results are poor.
