    Just curious, I changed mine sometime ago from Google to Bing, and have been very happy. I like Bing's layout, not sure if I'm missing anything from not using Google.

    I think Google has a much more intuitive and efficient search algorithm than Bing and Yahoo, though Bing is not terrible.

    I've used Bing on my iPad and my MBP for quite some time now. Works fine for me - I don't see Google being any better, frankly.

    I will not use an MS product ever again. Well just at work, but personally, no.

    Switched to Bing recently, had enough of Google and after testing Bing out over the last year or so, I finally believe it's as good as or possibly slightly better IMHO than google.

    As I understand, Apple is waging a thermonuclear war to destroy Android. As a mindless apple fanboy, I felt it was my duty to change from Google. I'm now using Lycos.com.

    I will switch to Bing once Google stops having amusing easter eggs. :p

    If I switch to Bing whenever somebody says "Google it" I'll feel left out.

    Bing tries its damnedest, but I just can't give up the Google.

    I use Bing. I prefer the look and layout over Google. To each his own.

    Has google changed this last week? It seems to have gone back to the horrible multi coloured tablet friendly garbage it spawned last year, the image search "larger than" is completely missing.

    I hate this new google, how do I change it back?
