Yippy search engine seemed to be very user friendly I like the tabs on the side of the screen that allow you to narrow down your searches by time, source, or by sites. There wasn’t a lot of random options that came up it was specific to what I had searched for.
Gigablast is a search engine that is said to run off wind energy so it’s a “green” search engine. Also another good feature to the search engine, is when you set up an account you can use parental setting for kid safe searches.
wolframalpha the best feature with this search engine would be that with the “pro” version you can actually upload pictures or documents to search.
ixquick proclaims to be “the world’s most private search engine”.
Blekko’s promise is that they are “categorically different”. This search engine is supposed to eliminate spam and being rerouted to unrelated sites.
Duckduckgo this is my favorite search engine that I have found thus far. It of course promises to not share your searches and be private like most of the other search engines. But this search engine gave the best “tour” of how exactly the search engine works and what makes it better than the others. My favorite feature is that when you search a question the answer is on the top tab you don’t have to scroll thru countless answers to random websites.
Dogpile has been around since before google but obviously nowhere near as popular. Honestly I wasn’t that impressed with what this search engine had to offer, it was basic.
Bing is powered by MSN a Microsoft company. Bing is said to be Microsoft attempt to take over google but not nearly as popular. Bing claims to be the “decision engine”. One feature Bing has that is different is that it offers suggestion on the top and gives other search options.
