Search Engines

Apart from the obvious answer, does anyone use an alternative search engine that they could recommend. Yahoo's Ok, have also tried duckduckgo, but does not work brilliantly on the android smartphone.

What's everyone else use?

I've generally used Yahoo (then the "obvious" answer if I can't find what I want, which is rare), although Yahoo is powered by Bing so in theory you should get identical answers from Bing (unless they have something extra written in). In the dim and distant past I used Ask.com. Why does duckduckgo not work brilliantly? Is it the graphics or some code that works only on desktop? Do they have a search equivalent of Yahoo (search.yahoo.com or uk.search.yahoo.com) that strips away additional graphics a la Google?
