So that's why when I see the Google results are not giving me what I'm looking for, I just type Bing, and get the rest of the results.

BTW I'm not really into conspiracy theories like in that video, so I don't mind them filtering out that crap. But a lot of relevant information gets lost with censorship like that. It's not a surprise though. Google and Facebook are the worst offenders of censorship on the internet. They have both helped the Chinese government censor their internet.

My bigger issue with Google is them turning their results into SPAM and just providing links to their advertisers. Even when that is not what you are searching for. Then the results just become total garbage.

I like Duck Duck Go as alternate to a Google Search. As an alternate browser Opera is an option.
