Three years ago, I switched from Google search to Bing. There, I said it. No longer do I Google something; I Bing it. And I haven’t looked back since.
Maybe you're considering doing the same, either over ire about the recent diversity-memo controversy, or some other aspect of the search giant that has rubbed you the wrong way. Here are some points to consider.
The move away from Google wasn’t easy. Sometime in the late 1990s, I was invited to test out Google’s search engine. I moved from poring though filing cabinets to typing queries in a search box. If it was out there on the web, Google promised that it would find it.
Over the years, Google became smarter and more responsive. Google Instant auto-suggested search results before I finished typing them. “Google it” became part of my vernacular.
