Search Engines Better than Google?

Google stinks.  Did you know you no longer than sort NEWS search results by date?  Why did they take this functionality away?  Strange feature to pull.  No?

Did you know that Google insight/trends no longer shows a graph early than 2005?  Used to go back to 1800's!!!!

I'm looking for any articles/analysis on why this decline in Google is happening and other search engines and why no one has stepped up and created a competing product.

i agree with thinkpads_user that Google is the best out there and has been for years.

Here are some links of engines that specialize in different types of search,

While Google may not do what you need, it is generally at the top of the game.

Have you tried Bing by Microsoft?  I don't think it is better than Google, but it might fit your needs better.

I use Google and I use Duck Duck go use.

When you are using free services you are allowed to whine but if you want to get something better then put up money to build a paid site that does what you want.  

Here is a review that demonstrates that all major search engines are lame.

I think you would find that Google doesn't consider it a 'decline' but changes that increase their advertising revenue.

Note: BING provides the search results for Yahoo now.

There used to be SUCH A HUGE difference in search engines.  Remember when you used to get different answers on ASK JEEVES?  DOGPILE?
Now they're all the same.
I have no problem with search engines generating revenue.  But GIVE ME WHAT I WANT TOO!

No, they give you what they want which is advertising.
