PS. The Coz, I see that a lot of your recent threads have gotten abuse, I happen to think some of them are funny, which is in the spirit of the Non.Av forum, I think some people take this scene too seriously!

Choice #1: www.google.com (now has a "local" feature)

Choice #2: www.info.com (it searches across multiple search engines)

I use the one and only Google. It's been months since I last tried another one and years since I actually used Yahoo, Altavista or other ones else that drove me completely crazy.

I use Yahoo. I don't like yahoo services, but their homepage is nice and not cluttered, and they have the good news headlines.

Kieron747, Thanks, I think it's great getting flamed ! ... silly 

As for what search engines I like to use:
I used to use Altavista a lot way back when; now it's mostly Google. Things should get interesting with Microsoft's new search engine on the scene. I think we're going to see some fascinating changes in the world of search coming from all three of these companies.

I see a lot of new start-up search engines coming on the scene too. These companies have made some truely innovative accomplishments when it comes to how we find things on the Internet.

Almost all the time, I use Google. Before I knew how good it was, I would use particularly IIRC: Netscape, Infoseek, AltaVista and Looksmart, depending on what I found practical at the time.

Google. Occasionally I'll try Yahoo if Google didn't seem to find what I was looking for.

Before Google came along, I liked MetaCrawler.
