    DuckDuckGo for general searches. Bing for images.

    duckduckgo. Google is heavily doctored and tracks everything you do.

    Have used duck duck purely for privacy but not as comprehensive as others and find it biased towards us sites even when select uk. Also when select uk it does not stay as default. Also use bing.

    That's a web browser. Or did you just mean Google's search engine because you use Chrome?

    Google. I don't know, I never had the need to use any other search engine, and I don't like Bing for some reason.

    Re: QOTW: Which search engine(s) do you use?

    DDG for personal, Google for work.

    Also fall back to google for more advanced/deeper searches. DDG is good enough most of the time, but clearly not as good as Google.

    Have started using Firefox temporary containers which helps curtail Google a bit.

    Re: QOTW: Which search engine(s) do you use?

    On PC I use DDG as my default search engine (in Firefox), as part of my efforts to gradually de-Googlify. It works well for about 80% of searches, but for the balance I end falling back to Google... it's just better

    On Mobile I use FF and DDG also, but end up using Google a lot more (through the app on Android)... this thread has actually prompted me to think about how to use the Google app less...

    I use almost always DuckDuckGo. Only rare I use Bing. Never Google.

    Re: QOTW: Which search engine(s) do you use?

    Google.

    Yes, it's the big evil thingy. Oh, the horror.

    I use DuckDuckGo once in a blue moon - usually when I fancy a scenic route (via the occasional cul de sac) to the information I require. I like the premise, but it's still a bit crap.
