I have been using DuckDuckGo (https://duckduckgo.com/) as my default search engine for over a month, and I'm very happy with it for generic searches. It's no good for special searches where you're looking for exceptionally fresh, deep or non-popular data. It also doesn't excel for search Finnish content. But usually it's good enough. Of course you can use !Bang syntax (https://duckduckgo.com/bang.html) and so you don't need to go to www.google.com, change search engine or so. Also if it returns few results, there is link that allows you to execute same search using Google. Just try it out.
