Today I had to search a piece of javascript EXT-JS code for my work and spent 30 mins without getting any success with Google. Went to Bing and bingo, got it on first page itself.
Have been going through this for last 15-20 days. I won't use google until I hear something +ve from them about really good search results.

    hehe.... thats pretty good attitude bro. Revolution starts from a single person... but bing guys are taking results from google itself.

    Well there are many cases where bing gives better results but this is not always the rule, anyway google lose users everyday, that's why they change their algorithm so frequently...

    April Search Market Share: Bing Up, Google Up, Yahoo Down - Seeking Alpha

    In Search Market Share: Google up (65.9%), Bing up (18.3%) and Yahoo down

    And me, I use both.

      Yup! It's funny how people in the WF spout off stuff, like
      nonsense about google. Don't let facts get in the way, right?

      Add to this that chrome is now beating IE, and what do you have?
      People leaving google? Sure. The world loves those android phones...

      Silly threads get silly replies.

      If you were disappointed in your results today, lower your standards tomorrow.

      My experience with Bing so far has been that if you want to see pre-penguin Google then use Bing...

    The alternative to google is viral marketing / social media / video marketing / optin / offline marketing. :-)

    Honestly I dont think its possible for me to stop using Google search. Whenever I'm not impressed with my search results, I can go to Bing, etc...
    For me its always been Google 1st, though I keep other search engines close, and even use plugins to retrieve results from more than one search engine...
