    I am curious to see who has their phone set to default to Google, Bing, Yahoo!, etc... and why?
    I, personally, have my Passport default to Bing because I prefer the results and layout more than Google or yahoo.

    Just changed it to duckduckgo because I read about it in this topic. Had never heard of it, but two out of four here (both because of the privacy settings) make it worth exploring and testing ;-)

    Google but I use bing if I want to look a picture. Image search is way better.

    Google, because they know so much about me that it only shows me results that fit my world view and thus fulfills my need of self-assurance.

    Plus I use gmail so it's a lost cause.

    DDG has another advantage. The bangs function allows almost any search engine to be accessed via DDG. I set that and immediately use a bang to search on another.

    Want to search Google Images? Add !gi at the end. YouTube? !yt, heck even there's !bimages.

    Google, however if I'm looking for things such as streaming / torrent sites I tend to use bing or duckduckgo as Google blocks a lot them from showing up in the search

    I don't search because I know where everything is.

    I memorized an internet map years ago so I know it from one end to the other. Every now and then, when I get bored, I surf out to the end of the internet just to make sure it hasn't moved...

    Duckduckgo because of the privacy and personally I love the way it gives you the most likely thing that you are searching for at the top. I know Google has the same (for example when you are searching for a famous person or a company) but DuckDuckGo has this for almost anything and you can switch the categories like definition or meaning or Q&A.

    Bing. Got away from Google when I got my Z10 and found that Bing will pay me.

    On my personal devices it's duckduckgo. On my work stuff, for now, it's Bing. Maybe once a month I'll use Google if I can't find what I'm looking for on ddg or bing.

    I use DDG. Instant answers are awesome. Bangs are awesome. Cloud save settings is awesome.
    It also supports parameters like site:crackberry.com
    (tip: if you tap the site icon, it will search for results from that website)

    I use Google and bing etc. But I use them via bangs.
    Try out my settings here

    Go to a website like www.duckduckgo.com
    Open the menu > add search

    To change the default search engine, start typing in the browser. At the top right, the buttons icon will show the current search provider. Tap that to change default search provider

    For the home page, browser > settings > display > the dropbox at the very top

    Yes, sometimes I become so dejected when I reach the end of the Internet. Sigh...

    I thought we were all reassured by our helicopter parents just how "special" we are!
