    Was just thinking about this, what search engine do most of you use? or what search engines out there do you feel are good, but dont get recognized enough?

    Personally, I'm one of the many google fans. Used it since day one of its release, and still using it.
  2. Google.

    Image Search is your friend. :thumb:

    I use google the most, 99% of the time.
    I'll occasionally be caught using Yahoo!, but I prefer Google. No nonsense searching, just results. And I'll also concur that Image Search can be very helpful in the right situation.

    ::says quickly:: Jeeves

    Google at times, when Jeeves doesn't turn anything useful (or OT, but interesting).

    Once you go google, you never go back.

    Here's an example of why I like Google:
    If you do a search on pokemon+card+rulings, you get the Team Compendium site as your number one response. And we certainly never paid for any placement.

    Meanwhile, Ask Jeeves doesn't even list us anywhere near the top.

    I will say that Yahoo also puts us as the number one choice.

    Gotta love it.

    Google. It's fun to type in weird things ("French military victories" comes to mind *ducks*) and hit "I'm feeling lucky." :D

    Doesn't Yahoo! actually use the Google search engine under the hood?? Just wondering...

    Google and Yahoo! are in NO WAY connected, other than that they are both search engines.

    Yahoo! Search has its own engine that it uses, which is "loaned" out to a few other engines. But Google, well, google is good enough to create its own service. One that tops any other available.

    I *usually* use AOL search first, only in the fact I'm on AOL and there's a Search entry box on the screen at all times, so I don't need to go to a website to start anything. ;) AOL search also has Image Search and is relatively quick.

    BUT, when I get tired of paging through tons of unrelated things, then Google it is. :)

    I always go to Altavista.com. In 2000, according to Guinness World Records, Altavista.com had the most hits ever for a search engine site. It has Image search, Video search, anything.

    Well there is a google search box built into my web browser and they seem to give the best results so I'll have to say Google.

    I've done that before. "Weapons of mass destruction" is a lot better XD.

    I use Copernic Agent, a program which searches using google, yahoo, aol, altavista etc.

    I use either the Optimum search, which uses Google combined with a few others, or just regular Google.
