Google trumps Bing

When I updated my PC a couple of months ago the bloke who did it installed Bing as the default search engine.

Nine times out of ten it didn’t give me what I was looking for and I ended up doing a Google search which almost always had a much higher success rate.

Another shortcoming with Bing for someone who types faster than she spells was that unlike Google it wouldn’t offer alternative spellings if a word I typed didn’t make sense.

I eventually gave up on Bing and made Google the default setting.

    Google is way out there on the usage stats and for good reason. Can anything replace it? Yes, the next wave of technology.

    For example, Siri is going to cut into the Google domain, and such technology might give other search engines a chance to offer a different, but as effective service.
