Enter simply what time is it to get the local time in big cities around the world
Holy crap. It doesn't just do big cities. It got it for every small town I've ever lived in or near, including the population 93 middle-of-nowhere blip that is the nearest town to the farm I grew up on. I only had to specify the state for one place, or it would grab a city in Pennsylvania.

Simply search for, in quotes: "better than _keyword_"
Some example results:
Results 1 - 100 of about 550 English pages for " better than WinAmp".
Results 1 - 57 of 57 English pages for " better than mIRC".
Results 1 - 100 of about 17,500 English pages for " better than Digg". (Wow. Poor Digg.)

The results will almost always lead you to discovering alternatives to whatever it is you're searching for.
Results 1 - 10 of about 428,000 for "better than windows"
Results 1 - 3 of 3 for "better than Puppy linux".
Out of those three, the strings that matched in the bottom two were "Is DSL noticably better than Puppy Linux or Feather?" and "To me there isn't any other Linux Distro better than Puppy Linux."

The only one that was "correct" was this "I would suggest Xubuntu. I installed a P3 553 mhz with 128 mb of RAM and it ran amazing. I like it a lt better than puppy linux."


Though to be fair, moving the "linux" outside the quotes yields this:
Results 1 - 10 of about 303 for "better than puppy" linux.
