Well there is no "best" alg for every case; everyone has different preferences. Also, 4 or 5 algs really isn't many to look through at all: when I generate algs, I sometimes look through 40-50 rather than just 4-5.

It's almost quicker to try 4-5 algs than it is to type a post out asking what other people use...

Hi, I started cubing about a week ago to posting this thread, and obviously I'm not going to be the best. I can barely get under 2 minute times, but I'm still learning OLL and PLL, so I'm not worried about that. What I am kinda worried about is a situation that has happened multiple times while doing F2L and practicing it. I'll have a picture of what it looks like, because it'll be a lot harder to explain. I'm talking about the orange-blue pair closest to the camera. T he white faces you while the top colors are the same. And I do see the green-orange pair to the left, but I'm looking for a solution to the blue-orange. Usually I'd do something like R' U R and solve it from that, but it's pretty inefficient to have to basically solve 2 pairs. Is there an algorithm that I could use to solve this problem? I'm also not talking about only if they're grouped together, like they are now.

I'm trying to remember an alg that I used to know. It was a Y-perm, but not from the typical angle; It swapped UF and UL, as well as UFL and UBR. The first two moves were R' U2.

If it makes it any easier to find, I read this alg in a post by the user Chree.

P.S. If anyone finds Chree's post, just leave a link to the entire thread.

Sorry, I want an alg that doesn't start with a Y or a U. I want to solve THAT angle, not some other angle. Sorry if I wasn't clear about that.

P.S. I need some new G-Perms for big cubes.

EDIT: I'm going to use [R U R' U : R' U2 R U R' U2 L U' R U L'] for my Y-Perm from the non-standard angle. Yes, I wrote that in conjugate form. Yes, I would still like some G-Perms for big cubes.

Anyone know a algorithm for the following (attached) scenario with bar on left. LEG-1 isn't the most popular, but still trying to work thru all the scenarios involved. Thanks.

I came up with one earlier but it's not very fast because it is just an R2 B2 transition from a Eg-1 alg so it's long.
