AOL is the third in line and you have heard little or nothing about it, as it is a search engine from the web services company America Online, which decided to create their own engine.

Now we find Baidu number four, and although it is not commonly used in Europe, if it has a significant audience in Asia, specifically in China where it is above Google.
