I tend to use whatever is available to me built into the browser because I can't remember the last time I ever typed "google.com" or "bing.com" into an address bar. Even for testing my internet I use "test.com" because it comes naturally to my brain.

I've heard good things about the points, but I don't use any search engine for anything nearly enough except for when I'm lazy and search something like "russia wiki" so that the first link I get is the wikipedia.org/russia page, and I don't have to type all that in. same applies for "_____ youtube"

Maybe you should have read a bit more into that scandal, because to me it they used some other method to get those results. You can check out the article here http://searchengineland.com/bing-why...usations-63279 rather than just blindly believing or judging, so quickly with out further investigation.

By the way, i will use either search engine, both of them give the results i am looking for most of the time, but i will never create a profile and login just to do searches, i already don't like the fact that they track pretty much everything we do online, but creating a profile and allowing them to make a more accurate profile of you makes it so much more disturbing.

Microsoft>Google

I'm sticking with the company that has been innovating for 10 years instead of playing catch-up to every company that actually takes risks and puts themselves out there. In short, fuck MS for the myriad of things they have done over the last 20 years that have been despicable. Google has a loooong way to go to burn through all the good will they have built with me.

Ah yes, that kinda came out wrong. I meant, I don't know if Bing is good or not, but I resent it being shoved onto IE and shady dealings like that.

I wouldn't worry to much about it. Google got rich selling worthless ad sense. Amazing..

Ill be glad when google is replaced and they will be. MS has a purpose in the world, google not so much.

That's the reason I hated Bing. Horrible search engine for pictures.

Bing hired out its search API, and recently decided to start charging for it...
