Today is the the last day of service for internet search engine AltaVista, which has been around since 1995. Do you use an alternate search engine to the big 3 (Google, Bing, or Yahoo)?

Yes, many, and AltaVista was one of them. Most of the non-specific ones these days use Google or Yahoo behind he curtain anyway, but it's worth trying the top half dozen or so if you come up empty on GoogYaBing.

End of an era, AltaVista was a real pioneer. DEC could have owned the market, they didn't know what they had.

I sometimes use DuckDuckGo. It's an anonymous search engine.

Yeah, I like DuckDuckGo. I use it mostly, but Google is still the default browser bar search.
