  • Wow, I thought I knew of every search engine, but I was surprised at the 3 that I had never heard of. I remember when was around and it was my favorite until google caught up. I strongly believe that there is no search engine that surpasses google. Bing is a decent search engine, however, they drew me in with their point-earning program. The program is nice, but after using their search engine for 1 day, I missed google. Bing gives some of the same results, but I found that half of them were unhelpful and irrelevant versus google that gives 90 percent more of relevant results.
