There are a ton of search engines out there, but which ones do you use most?

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.

I do use google for images.

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.

I tend to use Yahoo more than anything else because it has a better-looking homepage than google.

Whilst I have a few minutes on the computer, I just wanted to share that I use Yahoo because you can check the market on the homepage especially when you aren't supposed to be doing that. Like for when I go in the computer lab at school, I go on Yahoo just because it says how the market is doing on the home page.

I have to agree with Alcregular, back in the days when the net was "starting" Jeeves was the dogs nuts. But google is great, and it is part of the English language now. Everyone knows Google, who every askes Jeeves anything now?

I am a Yahoo guy. I have been using Yahoo for quite a few years, since the background was a greyish color  Smile Great homepage, good headlines, weather, email, groups, IM and a pretty decent search engine. If I don't find what I am looking for there, I go to Google. If no luck there, I give up. MSN? Hell No. Who did that page, it looks like total chaos.

Google is definatley the best out there. Their Desktop search is also great, and it is IMO the best search engine out there.
