I've tried really hard to like DuckDuckGo but I can't get on with it. I do like their image search though.

@jamie is it the results? I tend to find that everything but technical searches are fine. When I don't get the results I need, I prefix my query with "!s" to use Startpage instead, which is basically Google.

I'd use Startpage full time, but the UI is horrible, I think.

@kev Yeah. I find myself hitting !g most of the time.

Now that you mention it, I have been doing a lot of nerd searches over the past few weeks. That might be it.


@jamie @kev Google always has better results from forum posts which is often where I find the answers to a lot of my searches. If I'm not looking up some obscure edge case then DDG's results are usually fine.
