It's a useless question and at least shouldn't have asked in Linux - Newbie forum. Use General forum for such question which are actually not Linux oriented.

Duck has recently implemented a terminal interface which is quite interesting.

clusty.com for me. Clustered results in case you (rarely) don't find what you look for on the first page of results.

Only duckduckgo. I gave up on Google after the time I searched for bookcases and got hayracks.
