  1. Google, Yahoo, Bing and Blekko......

    I feel like circus music should be playing as these clowns all unload from a tiny wind-up car.

    Finally a safe way to find lyrics, im so sick of these bogus lyrics sites with seedy popups and "send these lyrics to your phone", why the hell would i want lyrics on my phone?

    Hahahahah ... so true.

    Agree. This might be their downfall.

    Also people new to this engine might come to try it out, but most of them expect Google like functionality like Instant and others. This is why they will not explore the engine further than one or two random searches.

    Just tried it out and I love it!, watching the video is a must though for knowing about its various features.

    Again, competition is healthy in the marketplace. It only drives each other to improve on their current product/service.

    I'll give this a shot, but as others have stated. It's hard to change people's habits. But who knows, hopefully it works out for them.

    That could be part of the issue of this catching on also, people want things instantly. They don't want to have to watch a video to figure out how to do something. This is really a shame but its the way the world is headed.

    I just googled a search then used blekko for same it seems google is a bit more accurate & both search engines seem to have relatively different results besides when you google you get links to maps,images etc. Love the slashtag feature because when you need news google brings out years old results.Though blekko will need a lot more to compete with google.

    I am fearing that in the end google is going to buy it out.

    Resistance is futile. Someone will purchase this and squander it's ambitions away.
