Does anyone *not* use Google for searches?

Does anyone *not* use Google for searches?
I used to work with someone who used Yahoo and I always thought that was pretty weird :p

I avoid Google whenever I can - Duck Duck or Yahoo or Wolfram Alpha. You'd be amazed to see the things Google doesn't show you ;)

Aside from technophobic people who've managed to set their default search engine to something that isn't Google, I don't know anyone who, given the choice, doesn't use Google.

I don't use Google at all, I use DuckDuckGo for search.

Good Man, TJ! :p
Google filters out so many useful things ;)

Plus I don't like my searches being tracked, etc. by Google. I find the layout of DDG much easier on the eye too. It took a bit of time to get used to after using Google for so long but if you put up with it then it's worth it.

True. Google has become such a "habit".
But take some time and realise what other engines and meta engines there are. And discover the features. Google is basically unusable without adblock, do not track blah blah blah - and as we've seen with the Safari "error", Google doesn't honour "do not track"!
