My issues with Google go beyond my feelings about the company Alpha; I think the search results have degraded significantly over the years. The only exception is site-specific results (e.g., searching my blog for the keyword Havoc) which continue to be strong largely because of the depth of Google’s crawling.
You.com seems to better understand context of the search, sometimes suggesting Stack Overflow for example when I ask a technical / programming question.
I’ve given up on DuckDuckGo (poor results), and while I like the idea of Ecosia if the search results aren’t great then I won’t bother. And they aren’t great, especially for the niche searches I try to execute.
