Decide Which Search Engine You Really Prefer

Unable to choose between Google and Bing? That's OK—these three mashups display results from both search engines in handy side-by-side frames and make life simpler for the indecisive.

If you want to spend some time figuring out which engine you really prefer, one of these mashups is a good place to start. The premise of these sites is simple. Two search engines, one search box, results side-by-side:

They all look and act just about the same—basic frames with a search box at the top—but you've still got at least three options for Google and Bing mashups:

Bing & Google

Bingle

Bing vs. Google

I'm a bit biased toward Bingle simply because it has the best name out of the bunch, but which search engine mashup is your favorite? Or are you securely locked in to your favourite search engine? Thanks, Raghav!

    Great post! I tried all three mashups and, surprisingly, for the same search term - my name - each displayed different results not only between Bing and Google, as you would expect, but between Google in each mashup and between Bing in each mashup. I can't believe that the results order changes so frequently.

    I liked bing though .. but I would prefer Google .. may its just that I m in habit of using it ...

    Bing seems to have very outdated results from the tests I've done.

    I much prefer the blind search you mentioned earlier as it takes away any bias you might have: http://www.lifehacker.com.au/2009/08/blind-search-reveals-which-engine-you-really-prefer/

    I think it needs a nice mashup name though, Bingooooooo perhaps?

    I like bing vs google better, simply because the results scroll side by side.
