    What do you use as search engine? My primary search engine is Bing, Google and Duckduckgo.

    I find if I'm looking for some thing on the internet and Google cannot find it than bing or Ducduckgo will have it.

    Is there any search engine you use other than the three that you find any better? I find google use to be way better before but the past 5 years not where it use to be like before. I think part of the problem is the Google software now that things this is what you should see and not see.

    Google.

    IMO, it's not as good as a decade ago, but I get better returns with Google than with Duckduckgo.

    Used many in the past years, such as what came with the ISP, but the likes of Yahoo!, Bing, Netscape, Ask Jeeves, Infoseek and what ever that one was that showed you a rather convoluted map for what you searched for has been replaced with Google...

    Google is what I use as well. Bing was useless and Edge didn't help when I type the correct URL, Edge will still send me to a Bing search.

    I once set my home page to "about:blank" because it displayed instantly....Google as a home page is pretty minimal, and you can proceed from there thusly :)

    I remember setting home page in Firefox as 'about:blank', but it's been a while ago.
    Now I set preferences to open Firefox with a 'blank page'.

    There is so much spying on Internet travelers, I suspect the 'Deep State' knew who I was long before I started using Google :D :D

    I find bing seems to be way better now days at showing message boards and questions and answers sites like quora and reddit. I don't know why but in past google use to show lot of forums and social media web sites but now days moving away from this.

    I use google for everything, but in bookmarks also have +30 specialized search engines
    for stuff which I can't find on google.

    it depends on what you are looking for.

    Bing just doesn't give me the results I want, often frustrated.
