    Where or what search engine would you use? I mean, what other search engine would you use except the most popular? (popular = msn, yahoo blabla)

    EDIT: Lets say the most popular engines ceased to exist :D

    Don't ask that - I've just got to number 1 in G for a KW :)

    I'd find another but like many people I get lots of info from curated content sites - Mashable etc.

    If that happened I would expect a newcomer backed with heavy investment to fill the gap...

    Darknet - is exactly where I'd go, even if it was down that rabbit hole. TOR will get you there. What do you need from there?

    if anybody wants to look at some onion sites without downloading tor they can use the following two services but WARNING they will not be as secure as using tor

    http://www.onion.to/
    http://tor2web.org/

    Google won't become extinct, it will turn BH one day, and very soon. :) It has "our" inside man at a top position, and he is only showing incompetence when being ordered to stop outside BH'ers. Seems the biggest BH'er which G is behind the scenes, wants to win the BH game and eat the fruits alone.

    If it's not a BH'er why does it play rough with new people while giving all the advantages to the big global players? It has ruthlessly killed all its competitors too. It has monopoly over the biggest niche of all, the search markets.

    So, BH G isn't going to die, it will only show its black color soon when it is compelled to. IMO only!
