Google is still the best at finding info, here is a comment from that article on search engines:

I'm not a Google Fanboy but your article made me laugh. I'm wondering if you would be forthcoming enough to reveal your specific true motivaions/goals for writing the article? Honestly for most of the benefits you list for all the alternative search engines, my immediate reaction (and I imagine for many other too) was "who cares?" I've tried using Bing instead of Google for extensive periods of time even in recent months. Everytime the results on Bing for a search were "thin" and not very on-target, when I switched to Google and performed the same search, I found more and better results. The other features you list take a distant second place to the primary reason of using a search engine; finding the best information/website relevant to what you are looking for. No one does that better than Google. No one. I know for whatever real reason you are being anti-Google, that's a hard fact to live with. Good title though, in all the crap I get in my inbox it stood out enough to come here and read it.
