I know a lot use Google, but I read that Google is following a political path in telling you what news you should be reading. Sorry, but that is not my cup of tea. (Drudge Report).

So, what search engine is a good choice besides them? I think Yahoo may be somewhat linked with Google too.

RWS,
I've been using Bing as of late, it seems to work well for me.

They tailor what they present you based on your previous surfing history. You can disable that by blocking certain sites.

This is what I am currently blocking:

Evan,

That's quite a list you have there. How do you block that stuff?
