What do people here use to search for images? For me, neither Google or Bing cut it, though if i could mash them together ...

Google: problem is that images it returns often have nothing to do with the criteria  dry.gif . So why did Google list them? Because the criteria appears in the web page that the image was on. For instance, search for "motorbike" and images with automobiles will be among them.

Bing: images listed are much more concise to the criteria, somehow they seem to be 'parsing' the image. But there is no way to limit the date range or even to list them in date order  pinch.gif . So there is no way to look for new images of motorbikes.

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. ~C. S. Lewis

I use Yahoo (Bing) mostly. I'm reluctant to do so, but occasionally I do go to the dark side and use Google Images. sad.gif

In my Firefox search bar I've installed the following search engines. I use these before I do a Google search.

I'm a pc, running GNU/Linux.
