Which Search Engine Do You Use?

It seems that the word 'Googling' is now commonly used as a term for searching the Internet but which search engine to you actually use?

I use Google to do my Googling.

I use Yahoo. I'm not impressed with Google - forget the hype, it's just another ordinary search engine.

Re: Which Search Engine Do You Use?

Give webferret a go.....it uses all the main search engines and produces a list of up to 500 results. You do get a small advert on the free version but its worth it.

Re: Which Search Engine Do You Use?

I use google, because it does what I need it to do, and the site is not bloated like the other search engine sites are...

I want to search, not read the news, see comericals etc etc...

Why? It is not an invasion of privacy and it is used to help improve the system.


I used to use http://www.copernic.com/ before google.com. Altavista, askjeeves, hotbot, excite, etc. have faded away. Google owns all. Don't know why Sensis.com.au is even bothering.

Well according to the Australian, Google records are starting to worry privacy advocates.
