For basic scientific research, does not bubble like its parent "Google"
Good for curious beginners and early advanced academia.
Includes citations (sometimes), some duplications (I can live with that).
Free ... more advanced academic search engines are not free
Is not for shopping nor popular culture.
In my test (IMHO) far more accessible results for curious seekers than more academic search-engines.

My search for "coconut oil" returned excellent sources (Cambridge University) without all the opinionated spooks usually turned up by "consumer" search engines.
A keeper https://scholar.google.com :)
