If you are using MS OS use the search engine for it, Bing.

I think Google is over rated.

I agree. I use Bing. As I've said in the past, though Google does generate more raw results, Bing generates useful results. Plus Bing's image and video search rock.

I use google exclusively. I actually prefer the new style of the image search.

I did like Kartoo when it came out, the visual style was something completely new to me
but very intuitive. I just found out it was killed off early this year
I didnt really use it "in anger" but it was a clever idea IMO.

I havent persuaded myself to investigate bing! yet

Yeah, what's up with that?
Looks like they tried to expand on Bing's image search format, but made a right mess of it.

I've used google since before google was trendy,... I'm pretty much just used to it now, and I also hate what they did to images.

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. Thanks, Bob
