Sometimes DuckDuckGo sucks

I've been using DuckDuckGo as my main search engine. But man, sometimes it sucks compared to Google.

For example, if I search DuckDuckGo for pope francis interview, it doesn't even find the page.

On Google, it is search result #1.

Here's how the search engines fared:

  • DuckDuckGo: Not found.
  • Google: Result #1.
  • Yandex: Not found.
  • Yahoo: Not found.
  • Bing: Not found.
  • Blekko: Not found.
  • Ask/Teoma: Result #1. I wonder if it uses Google.
  • AOL: Result #1. Uses Google.
  • Lycos: Not found.
  • Dogpile: Not found.
  • Excite: Not found.
  • Mahalo: Not found.
  • Yippy/Clusty: Not found.

Did you know?

I'm a software engineering consultant. This means I can help your company with your software engineering needs:

  • providing temporary manpower for short-staffed software projects

  • helping new software projects get off to a good architectural start

  • improving the performance and reliability of old, legacy software systems

  • doing an important investigation or small project that you've always wanted to do but haven't had time for

Since 1999, I have done software engineering projects for the Canadian government, for Silicon Valley startups, and for established Bay Area companies, for small companies and medium-sized companies, for successful commercial projects and open-source projects. 

Currently accepting small projects. If you have one, email or call me.
