in thread Try DuckDuckGo://

google puts into studying webpages and providing relevant results has never been matched before or after them

I'm actually increasingly frustrated with Google's bad guesswork, erroneous query rewriting, parochial filtering/blocking/banning of resources, and catering to the lowest common denominator of web users. And I'm not even the only one in the local cube cluster so this doesn't seem to be a fringe reaction to their direction.

    add my +1 to duckduckgo, although i dont always find their results to be as good as google, i enjoy their community and the no-nonsense web design (why google was cool originally) googles latest redesign is fugly. ddg has just hired their first (second if you consider the founder) employee, and lots of their code is on github
