duckduckgo.com
bing.com

Or, if you are into Trump, yandex.ru, rambler.ru
Bing is good for programming, since it searches in the documentation of the whole visual studio, which has insane number of problems/solutions in it. But it sucks for linux-related questions (even though is getting better, because of WSL in Windows 10, which let's you run native Linux in Windows) Also for porn, basically what bing does not found does not exists. Bu you know if you are using Chrome, Google is kind of default what you get.

And I cannot speak Russian, nor I want to. Text is in Czech aka most western Slavic language.

Duckduckgo is still not as good, better than 10 years ago, but still it does not search as good.

Nice theme, but what the fuck is Yandex, well well well someone is outed himself (not you).... It's pretty fucked up, if this comes up when you type one character. Disgusting.
It comes up with shit like that for basically any letter or number you input. Yandex was my go to behind google but not anymore.

I was joking about Russian sites.

duckduckgo.com works fine form me for 95% of cases. Only when there is no other option left, I use google.

If more people acted like that, companies would react.
Obviously, I use duckduckgo on my linux machine, bing on Windows machine (since I am using chromium based edge), but on Mac I don't really care.

not a lot of gay black drag queens in czechia ?? missing out bro
Fuck, first time I ever had conversation with black person in here was last year in hospital (you can read it in my Magnus Opus thread on Neogaf) and that black person "from greatest country in the world" decided to stay in this "white infested" country. And I don't think we have drag queens, we had this past weekend some "gay pride parade" which was basically like a walk though Prague, without banners and weird people in that. It's striking how different culture we are, then westerns.

It comes up with shit like that for basically any letter or number you input. Yandex was my go to behind google but not anymore.
And why the fuck someone does not pull the plug on there, especially if it find what it's say from that autocomplete drop list..... It's disturbing.

Duckduckgo is pretty good for most things, I have it as my default search engine and then I go to Google whenever I can't find something on page one of duckduck (about once every 15 searches or so).

It'll mature and improve over time just like Google did if we give it a chance.

Aw shit, people looking for my approval, now I feel important :D
Well after all we are from the same country : ) We might not share the same values, but I think that Czech mentality is still in both of us. Your examination of how Czechs want no more than just waste their life, how we just want to stay comfortable without any aspiration to be better, was on point. But I guess, you as a teacher is exposed to this more, but it was pretty cruel reality check for me too. I basically pretty much wrote some song, by myself for first time after reading that. So thank you...

Yeah, feminists and liberals have turned this country into a shitshow. There ain't no goin' back, either.

I don't want to be asshole, but I feel like America is the biggest threat to western values, more so that for example Islam. Because there is some worrying amount of dumb shit going from there, I mean, I did not understand English properly till like 2008, but I started to notice it in last couple years, like 2015 onwards.

Can't believe people still use Google.
What are you using, on your side computer, is basically default in Chrome and I don't really give a fuck that much about it. I don't use google in my main PC or my Linux PC (where I mostly using bash)... Bing is my go to search engine, because it searches in the documentation of Visual Studio, which contains shitton of programming solutions for wide variety of programming languages.

I am not offended, I just don't like it. It has nothing notable to do with anything, I don't like how it's portraited and I think I have right to complain, about things I don't like.
Sorry, but that's untrue. If you criticize or have a negative opinion on something you're either offended or a hater.

Exactly, this mic drops reactions "you offended, fuck off", "you are racist", etc are so fucking weak. Not everyone is dumb fucking merican, I don't know any other country with such a shitty attitude when it comes to communication.

Wah? Seirously, WHAT?


There are 2 aspects of it, one, which one cannot overcome without changing the policies, is that duckduckgo does NOT KNOW YOU.
Yet it's a major thing in the context of searching, as when my neighbor looks up "Cerny" he's probably after Amanda, while when I do it, I'm more likely after that sexy Sony guy.

Search engine that doesn't have a file on you has an edge.


The other is, I think you don't fully realize the "voting" bit.
It's about taking action.
Totally not about "hey, you know, there is a better search engine out there".

Well if I do search that in the Duckduckgo, it gives me wikipedia about black color because "Cerny" or rather with diacritic "Černý" means "black" in Czech. And his ancestors is probably from somewhere in here, because this surname is pretty common in here, I know 2 people with same surname.

Duckduckgo's search results are the biggest issue, not how fast (or slow for that matter) it runs. It's a great search engine for finding general stuff, but not a very good one for finding specific things or, even worse, local pages.
