Google claim Bing's most popular search term is "Google"
For the last decade, Google has repeatedly come under fire for its dominance in the online search engine space. More recently, the tech giant has been under scrutiny in the EU over paying to be the default search engine on Android and various services, which just ended with a $5 billion fine against the tech giant.
However, Google's lawyers suggests the real reason for the incredible lead is that customers WANT to use Google Search over alternatives, event stating that the most popular search term on Bing, the second largest search engine, is “Google.” Therefore, this is a user's preference, not because they are being forced.
"We have submitted evidence showing that the most common search query on Bing is by far Google. People use Google because they choose to, not because they are forced to." -- Alfonso Lamadrid, laywer for Alphabet Inc (Google)
In contrast, Bing is Microsoft’s own search engine pushed as the default in their Edge browser as well as Windows, the most popular desktop operating system in the world.
What do you guys think, do you use Google because it's the default browser most times, or because you prefer it?
