    Bing

    Anyone else stopped using Google and changed to Bing?

    I've changed my default search to Bing now, and loving it. Get better relevant matches on searches and really like their daily image change on the frontpage.

    It's the uni default search engine at my uni. Not sure I enjoy it.

        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!

    The ridiculously simple Google homepage means I'm sticking with it. Though Bing's image search is nice.

    Think that Google has waaaayy too much personal information on me that I would like them to have. Would rather even the balance out by supporting Bing.

    Yeah, indeed. TBF when it was Live Search the image search was the same, but they never bothered to promote it. The image search is my favourite feature, that and the daily image that james mentioned.
