Okay, I've seen bad search engine, but this is a virus. Just a virus. I got it while searching "good and bad search engines" then got - THIS VIRUS. I had to reboot my computer and corrupted some of my files. This is bad. Bad.

Wait, I have not even heard of this search engine

The icons for other websites are SO old

Yeah, this doesn't exist. All it says is "Remove from Chrome" or "Remove from" whatever. That's all I need to know.

This search engine doesn't exist. It redirects me to yahoo for some reason

Brings up useless information, sometimes not even close to the keywords.

Takes you to a few, mostly unrelated sites - seldom what you are looking for.

Mostly brings up unreliable web sites.

Bing has very limited and skewed search results that never take me where I want to go. Bing seems to have an agreement with Microsoft that makes it the default search engine on every new computer that I use which is very annoying. I understand how Google thinks and how Google searches, why would I want to use a less competent program that always seems to omit the particular search results that I am actually looking for.

As I've said before on TheTopTens, a search engine is either Google or useless. But Bing is dreadful; no doubt about that. - PositronWildhawk

Worst EVER! It never pulls anything close to what I want. I put the exact same thing in Google (best ever) and the thing I want is the first result on page 1.

Pushing for it with windows but it can't find anything in eastern europe

It is a worse search engine. It is invasive to any computer with out knowing. I've difficult to get rid of this ass. It mess up with all my computer. I get rid off few time but again came back. Because of its invasive nature and worthless I don't recommend this to any body.

Absolutely horrible. Atrocious layout, atrocious order of search results and atrocious look. Besides, why would you even be using this anyways when you could used a better search engine such as google? - LowMiner50

Millions ads before a result, waste of time service

Best one ever

DDG isn't so much a search engine a a compilation of other search engines (Wolfram is awesome, for Bing see above). Their own crawl index is weak at best. If it is fast it is because it really isn't finding anything. Quickly and reliably finding nothing useful, usually with their own horn tooting somewhere near the top of the returns.

DuckDuckGo is THE way to go if you don't want all your personal information sold to the highest bidder. It's safe, reliable and fast.

So overrated. Just jammed together from other, better search engines.

This lets people crawl into the deep dark depths of the deep web.

Literally this search engine removes the first million results, hence its name. So all you get is unrelated crap

I like answers for the fun articles but for actual answers, forget IT.

Can never get through a whole search without it freezing!

12GoogleGoogle is an American multinational technology company specializing in Internet-related services and products. These include online advertising technologies, search, cloud computing, and software.

It doesn't know everything, like most people do. When you try to find the lyrics to the world's hardest song to sing, all they have is a YouTube video titled "The Most Messed Up Song Ever" which doesn't have the lyrics in the description so the song can't be ever explained. The story about the song is false. Google IS FALSE. If it never ever existed, there would be no bad search engine out there. This is the only bad search engine. You could be easily hit by a virus with this lump of cow poop. - jackintheboxisgross

Not only is their product garbage, not only does Chrome behave EXACTLY like a virus, not only do they intentionally rig and omit search results for the highest bidder and their political bedmates, but they also actively spy on and log all of their users' information for the NSA and then openly boast about it like it's a feature.

Google is one of the worst, most amoral companies in the world.

Google changes the words I am searching for even if I put them in quotes then gives me dozens of non-related results because it cannot search correctly any longer. They lost the ability several years ago and are sliding downhill ever since.

Google isn't even bad

If you want to totally waste an entire day, try to contact "Yahoo Customer, We Don't Care! Department".
They put you in a circular loop sending you to the customer care site, then to the sign in site and then to the customer care site and give you a number to call, "We are experiencing long wait times, so depending on your age and health, you may want to hang up, give up and go to Google, or you can be redirected to customer Care online which will bring you right back here after about an hour, final solution, you can wait on hold, listening to our annoying Yahoo refrain over and over and over again for three or four hours"..
Today is Sunday the 16th. of November 11:27 AM, I have been on hold since 8:22 AM, after I was dropped twice after waiting and additional two hours.
I have been trying to reset my email password, that Yahoo dropped for some reason, and then locked my account.
To unlock the account they put you in the circle of Hell...
Good Luck to anyone who may be ...more

My Chrome seems to be in love with this crappy search engine since it doesn't matter how many times I delete this sorry excuse for a search engine it always comes back...hell I can't even open up a new tab without it coming back...this search engine can be compared to a virus considering it doesn't go away no matter how hard you try...hell I had less trouble getting rid of Norton

Yahoo gives worse results than ask, bing, or any other bad search engine. Besides having tons of ads, like I said, THE RESULTS ARE THE WORST! Most of the time, malware sites come up before real sites when downloading things such as firefox, chrome, notepad++, and any other basic software.

Yahoo is hands-down the worst search-engine available by default on most web browsers.

HOLD IT, Yandex is terrible. The worst ever. Why does it get your results in different languages! I'm sure that the browser is a virus, it sound like Yontoo. This is bad. I hate it. MISERABLE.

Never heard of it? There's a reason...
