    Their are 2 things I really need from a search engine that I don't see in this one (only a quick look btw). I need to be able to limit my search by time, say up to 6 months or 3 months, last week etc. The other thing I find really handly is having a preview of the page on the right side like Google do.

    Is it as difficult to remove from your rig as Silverlight is?

    I like Google but hate how they change the page layout all the time. They removed ability to search within a certain timeframe which annoyed me.

    I really only use google.
    Last time I used something else was like altavista back in the 90s.

    Google has added some very annoying things such as hidden features I used, but the most annoying thing of all hands down is that when I go to google.de for example, the search results are still in English, and if I click on the "Google.de offered in: Deutsch" then all google sites are in German and it's really troublesome to open the settings each time I just want a quick search for e.g. local Orange services or such (English results show stuff from the UK).

    I hope they make google.com English only, and .de German only, much easier and intuitive but oh well. If it gets any worse I might start using Bing since it's integrated to WP anyway.

    Russia is huge chunk of land, would make sense I guess Still never heard of it but then people actual like bing? The moment I saw it and first tired it I hated it, then soon as it started getting bundled in to everything MS I hated it even more.

    But then I Bias I hate MS pretty if they made it i hated it. This includes windows sadly its the only OS supported by games on PC.

    It's like Google with most of the world, Baidu for China. Yandex is the Google of Russia.

    I seriously don't see what's good about Bing, it doesn't do anything better than Google can do. I'm very comfortable with using Google like I have been since it started.

    Bing is good when you look for something from MSDN, tho I have not tried using Google to check what it can find from there. Other than that, not really used it.
