    No mention of privacy? Unless it's better than Duckduckgo I'll stay put.

    Cool, will check this one out.

    Privacy is important, but usability and good search results even more, I really didn't like DuckDuckGo, it loads slowly on my system, that was quite a turn-off for me.

    That's cool, I do seldom use google, I had to do a reverse image search to find out the person that was chatting with me was a catfish. So I can't always slam Google, some of their tools are pretty nice :).

    Never actually used that feature, but I see it all the the time on MTV's Catfish. BTW, here is another site that you can use: https://tineye.com

    Would you pay for an ad-free search engine?

    I can imagine their conversation on the hike, ending in "We'll make millions".

    I will still stick with ddg I don't really see too many ads there, and for me it loads very well in Firefox, as for my privacy I'm not willing to pay extra for vpn's, my internet provider charges too much for it's true value anyway guess that's the way it is with satellite, no alternatives out in the country. I really don't have privacy anyway with the current state of government snooping. And thank you for the link Rasheed187 :) .
