I’ve only ever used it the last couple of years. I’d hate to see what a festering pile of garbage it was before that, if this is better.
I don’t have that problem with Google with SafeSearch turned off. (By default I turn off censoring in order to avoid losing relevant results.) The real problem isn’t that it’s porn, but that it’s wildly irrelevant results - it literally ignores everything but one common word in order to give me those results. Sometimes it seems to be ignoring every search term in order to give me porn, as there’s no conceivable link. (And to head off the inevitable - no, it’s not because I’ve been searching for porn on Bing; that’s literally never happened. It’s not a case of it giving me what it thinks I want based on previous searches.) So yeah, it’s just a shit search engine. At this point I mostly use it accidentally because I have multiple browsers open and forgot which browser I was in. When I see the poor results, I realize I’m in Bing, do the same search in Google and inevitably get better results.
My “opinion” of them is that they give shit search results. Which, for me, they do. So that’s less an opinion than a fact.
