    "While there are not many competitors in the search engine game, Bing offers a good alternative to Google. The rate at which results are generated is fairly similar, and the content is often just as relevent. It's my default in Explorer, and there is no need to change it. "

    "I don't always enjoy using Google. Sometimes I can't find what I'm looking for and it's frustrating. I found Yahoo Search Engine, which I've used in the past, and I'm finding it a great alternative to Google. When I can't find something on Google, I will try Yahoo! and frequently I will find just what I need there. It's my second favorite web portal next to Google. I really recommend it if you want an alternative to Google."

    "I don't really like Ask.com all that much. Keyword searches are so much simpler. Entering the keywords from what I need is a much faster process than trying to think of them AND then trying to frame it as a question. Image searching is also a pain. Ask comes in handy, but it's a poor alternative."

    "This search engine is great. I feel safe when doing my online searches. It allows for my privacy while searching which is something that I have wanted for a long time, who doesn't?!

    "Not sure about privacy (you really have very limited control over what data Internet companies collect and how they use it) but Yandex is #1 Internet company in Russia (Russian Google sort of), their search engine is reliable and gives better results than Google for queries in Russian and related to RuNet (Russian segment of the Internet). Speaking from personal experience."

    "I don't like this at all. It is a search engine powered by the combined opinions of people who all think alike. I guess it's great if you like to only do business with, and search subjects, that you agree with and are just like everything else and everyone else around you. It is a great way to avoid letting in other opinions and beliefs. No thanks, this isn't for me or my business."
