You would be surprised how much bigger Bing is than you think

Bing is certainly better now than a few years ago, it's the only search engine I use these days and most people I know are also using it.

I'll stick with Google. It gives me more information on may topic over a search with bing. IMHO.

Hi bob3160,

This time I will completely side with bob3160 on this. There is no one yet to beat Google at it.
See where Google bends the code curves, be vigilant, and know what to block, but appreciate the enormous versatility.
Google knows more about me than my own dear wife knows about me or me, myself and I  ;D
Isn't that amazing?

I gave up on google many years ago, it might be a good search engine, but it stopped honouring my search settings in the number of entries per page, etc. So it got kicked into touch.

I'm not a fan of MS Bing either.

Bings effective integration to windows 10 bothered me in windows 10 just another MS data gathering tools.

When I do a search, I obviously want answers.Therefore I pick the search engine that gives me the most answers.
Anything else is immaterial. I have other tools that I can use to sort out the garbage.
Using a search engine that limits the answers to me is useless. :)
