I have mentioned before that I am an Edge/Bing (now Bing beta) user most of the time. I also use Chrome/Google for some stuff, usually when I can't find what I want from Bing. I use IE for financial stuff, because my bank has given me free some high security software for it, and I have Firefox for checking sites if they are not working properly.

I am, you my say, an equal opportunity employer. Shucks | :-\

For the last week I have been frantically Bingleing some fairly esoteric techy stuff and was getting nowhere - except sites that MS or Google wanted me to go to. (Insert various pachydermial Soapbox expletives here).

Out of frustration, and while consuming a cup of Orange Pekoe, I recalled I had installed Vivaldi a couple of months ago. I quickly updated it, configured it to my liking, and set up DuckDuckGo as my default browser and home page.

Within two hours I had found more useful stuff that I was looking for than in the previous week with Bing and Google. Finally I have a search engine that finds the sites I want rather than those which pay the search entity the most, and a browser that stops elephants from following me all over the web.

... though it may have been the tea... Smile | :)
