Re: New Google results page??
I suspect that if you compare Google results to other search engines,
Google will be better. In addition, if people are concerned about privacy issues, you can get a lot more privacy by not being logged into your Google account when you search.
Others may want to compare other search engines to Google. One thing missing from the search engines I tried was a caching feature. This is a very useful feature at times. And the little comparison I've done, as I recall, it's been quite awhile, seemed to show, though I didn't do a lot of testing and this needs to be confirmed or disconfirmed, that I saw the most relevant results sooner in the list.
and I'm not sure if these other sites show the address of where the link leads. That is essential in today's security environment unless you know how to see where the link leads in other ways.
I'd have to experiment to see if one method is better than another, that is if having the address right there on the page is meaningfully more convenient than using copy link location, then reading it from the clipboard by making the screen-reader read the clipboard content.
As far as caching goes, it is invaluable if you are dealing with a web page that is a pdf page, or something like an rtf document. Using the cached version opens a Google converted version of the document. It is a standard web page. it saves you conversion time or reading the document in a viewer. It's right there as a web page.

Hi there: You can also use startpage as your search engine. Been using it for years. I don't use Google and since I was given startpage as a search engine I never used Google as the search engine.
