    No, not me. Google only. It's not just about search results anymore, it's the convenience of having everything in one place.

    I understand that email, file sharing things are at one place, and I also like those, but problem happens when I am trying to find something else and google keeps showing something else...

    Like yesterday only, I was looking for some answers on a new API service I was trying to integrate in my website.
    Google showed answers for 2 questions in first attempts itself, but for 2 others, it kept showing me (I don't know what it kept showing)
    Tried varient of keywords, did not mattered. Google kept shuffling the same results...

    Then finally I gave up with google and used duckduckgo.
    Little bit work, and I found what I was looking for...

    duckduckgo - first time when I hear about this engine.
    I do it more "classic" - Google. Some results are obviously truncated but so far cant say other engines do it better.

    I'm all for using alternatives to Google, but I find the search results of DuckDuck to be a bit lacking in terms of quality. I used to like startpage.com, but their recent switch of investors made their business practices a bit dubious. These days I most often use a searx instance. Results are pretty good (it's a meta search engine after all), but sometimes there are issues with availability and I have to trigger a search process multiple times to get results.

    I would love to find a good Google alternative that actually provides good quality results but I have yet to find one. So unfortunately I'm stuck with Google for now.

    Duckduckgo results are almost similar.
    In some cases, slightly better.

    The best thing is that they do not mix 2 keywords.
    Google will show almost same result for 2 keywords, if they are slightly similar.
