I have used DuckDuckGo and Ixquick for quite some years now.  I try to 
encourage otehrs to use it too, they don't confine you to results that 
the computer "thinks" you will like.
I think DuckDuckGo is especially nice with the whole ! (bang) 
searching.  I use that an incredible amount.  You can search the 
ubuntuforums with !askubuntu <String> or askubuntu with !askubuntu <String>
There are tons of sites
And there are tons of other goodies too...
I think it is a superior search experience, though sometimes I use 
ixquick if I can't find what I am looking for.  It is nice having 2 to 
get different results, though in the past year ddg has gotten a lot 
better results.
