BlindSearch – According to StatCounter Global Stats during July 2009 89.78% of all online searches were performed using Google, 5.48% using Yahoo and 3% using Microsoft (Bing, MSN and Live). But would these results have been the same if we were to remove the brand name from search engines? How differently would you, the user, perceive the results? BlindSearch gives you the ability to do just that: type in a search query in the top box, hit search and then vote for the column which you believe best matches your query. The columns are intentionally randomized for each query. I did several tests and my results are the following: 40% Google, 40% Bing and 20% Yahoo.
