I am reliably informed that our friends in the USA often ask each other the question about when their first coca-cola moment was. Google is not a brand powerful enough to warrant a “where were you the first time you googled?” question but it is not far off it.

I use google because it finds the websites I am actually looking for most of the time. It always seems to do it quicker and more efficiently than any other search engine I have used.

I can’t help thinking that our love affair with Google will soon be on the wain though. I don’t know why it is that I feel let down by them for allowing the Chinese to censor their search results but I do. It’s not even amusing that Guinness appears to be censored by I just wanted them to be a bit different. They’ve let the secret geek in me down.

Try Copernic as an alternative –

The basic is a free download and the desk top search is good.

I find it gets sharper results than Google if you know how to ask the right question – certainly a good back-up.
