I'll be changing from Google. I've used Bing and it's okay. But I'd like some feedback on which non-Google search engine you use.

Beside DuckDuckGo, [duckduckgo.com...] , I can't think of anything else (large enough)

When I search for something, I am using more and more ... Twitter !

At some point, I thought that wikipedia was developing its own search engine, but I guess no.

default? I'm all over the place when it comes to discovery on the interwebs. bing, ddg, goog, twitter, amazon, facebook, alexa, siri. For me, nothing is default any more.

I heard some times ago, that Yandex was coming to the USA to defy Google face to face. The Yandex bot is very active, but I don't know what to think about this search engine.

Baidu seems interesting too, but it looks like it's only for the chinese market.

Recently, I heard about [searchencrypt.com...] too.

Bing is satisfying. DuckDuckGo is intriguing. Yandex is a different viewpoint. All together cover a very large swath of the web. G has become more limited for some searches as their ideology gets in the way.

Use whatever gives results.
