21% of fedizen still use Google search. We need to change that!
@PaulaToThePeople I always use Ecosia first but switch to Google regularly when Ecosia doesn't find what I need - unfortunately especially the image search on Google is still a significant cut above Ecosia's, and it tends to find academic papers I need more reliably.
@JubalBarca @PaulaToThePeople When you need google results Startpage.com will show them to you w/out having to go to google. So it’s worth a look. There are also many searx instances that scrape Google, and that’s even better if you boycott Google because it grabs the results without generating ad revenue for Google.
@PaulaToThePeople Interesting result; would guess that the fedizens are not very representative… Would guess “out there” 80%+ are using Google. Personally very happy with @Qwant . Ecosia is also great, I hear but bing-based. Not so sure about DuckDuckGo. Great engine, but US based. Qwant is France-based, and in 90% of my searches I’m happy with the result
