I have used Google as my basic access point to the web for many years. I have never used a different search engine.

Should I? Are there features on other search engines that would make using a different one worth checking out? I know there are some very IT savvy people around here, and am basically just looking for feedback re: search engines.

I've heard some interesting things about Blekko (more info). It's big feature is that it uses slashtags to help refine your search, weed out spam, etc.

Interesting article on Wired.com, about a smaller search engine (DuckDuckGo) challenging Google over privacy issues.

Hunch is pretty cool.

Metacrawler combines several search engines.

I find that Bing gets me more precise results up front but not always all the results I might like. The Bing interface is really pretty.

With Google, I find more interesting results if I'm willing to wade through the results. I'm not sure if I like Google's revising search results as I type.

Google Image search is better than Bing, but Bing's video search is better than Google, especially with the previews.

If you have an iPhone, the Google "Goggles" applications is awesome.
