The search engine wars are many things: one-sided, enduring, non-violent. But like all good immutable conflicts, they can also be catty.

Advanced warning that it's a more civil war than you might have expected. And that, more than anything, the internet is filled with some very confused people.

Google

Bing

Yahoo

DuckDuckGo

DuckDuckGo rises above the fray (in that it has no autocomplete).
