In all corners of the world, if you're looking to do an internet search, chances are high that Google is your go-to.
The company leads the global search market. But Google's domination hasn't extended everywhere, and Russia is one of the few countries where it lags behind. Here, 55 percent of the market belongs to the homegrown company Yandex.
Like Google, Yandex is so much more than a search engine. It offers email, cloud, and online payment services, streaming music, news aggregatio, and live traffic maps. Yandex.Taxi merged with Uber last year, and it is testing self-driving cars.
Basically, Yandex sure sounds a lot like Google. So why do the majority of Russia's 144.5 million citizens actually prefer it?
Watch the video above to learn why.
Clarification: This story has been updated to reflect that Google leads the global search market, but it is not clear what percentage of the market it holds.
