Personally I have found Google’s AI driven search to be a failure as I’ve written about in previous posts: . While I appreciate their approach to innovation, I disagree with their implementation. They’ve bet everything on their AI and it just ain’t workin’ for me. Google can afford to hire people to beta test their AI, right now I need a fast and reliable search engine that will return relevant results.
To that end, I’ve tried DuckDuckGo.com and I just haven’t been able to adopt their approach. I find myself checking their results against other search engines because I’m worried I’m missing something. Often I’ve checked Yahoo! for those results so I’m going to give them a shot. I’d like to see if the usability and results are more inline with what I’m looking for.
I’ve updated by default search provider in my browsers and put a sticky on my monitor so I’ll go to Yahoo first. I’ll keep y’all up to date on how this experiment goes!
