Back to google

So, the fundamental browser feature I use the most is this set of keystrokes:
* cntrl-T–open a new tab
* g search term–to search for “search term”
(I set up g so the keyword expands and points to a search engine.)

Periodically, I’ll hear of a new search engine–a google killer. And I’ll switch my bookmark so that ‘g’ points to the new search engine. I’ve tried AltaVista, Teoma and, lately, IceRocket. Yet, I always return to Google. The others have some nice features–IceRocket shows you images of the pages–and the search results are similar enough. What keeps me coming back to google is the speed of the result set delivery. I guess my attention span has just plain withered.

Anyone else have a google killer I should try?
