I found this interesting. Today at work I searched for images of members of our party. Google found 32 from 48. I then used Bing to search for those Google didn't find and got 6 hits. Maybe it's time for me to change my default search engine

Interesting. It just goes to show that Google, whilst easily being the most well-known and popular SE, doesn't always find the full results. Although I have Google as the default, if I am looking up something fairly obscure I will probably see what the alternatives have to offer as well. No SE is perfect, and having alternatives easily available can help to plug the gaps.

i love the bit at the end "oil discovered under a 1993 ford fiesta" I use google too, simply because Bing's layout and colour scheme offends my eyes, and yahoo is owned by google so its pretty much the same thing, but i use greasemonkey to stop google from logging my searches

Search Engine ? Hello,
Is there a free, or inexpensive, search engine that will search the text in the documents in all my files, and not just by file name ?
In other words, literally searching every text word on PC, wherever it might be, looking for a match.
Search engine results This is not a problem now. I just want to put it on record for the non-believers. Some time ago - maybe a year or so, someone posted online that she could not bring up Wikipedia when she did searches. No one believed her. Everyone kept saying she was doing something wrong.
What is your favorite search engine? So guys what is your most loved/used search engine?
Vote, and feel free to comment about it and please have fun don’t start damming people to hell just cause they use Y instead of x if you know what I mean ;)
I personally use BING and prefer it to google!
EDIT: please post your loved search...

Slow search Engine I just upgraded a Dell XPS 410 with a new HD, graphics card, and Windows 7 Home Premium. I also boosted the RAM from 1gb to 4gb. I changed the default Bing search engine to Google. In my homepage in IE, I can access favorites with no problem. If I try to use the google search engine to get to a...
Windows 7 search engine First post here. I am really surprised not to see more discussion of this, and I have not found any sort of acceptable alternative since starting with Windows 7 in March of 2011
I simply do not understand the Windows 7 search engine capabilities. Perhaps the best way to highlight this is with...
win7 search engine I always use the search engine a lot, and in win7 I can't manage to find out how to search inside files and folders. Need to search for specific strings in textfiles.
Is this feature not implemented in win7 or is it just me that can't find it?
