  2. Google without a doubt, it always has the results I need and probably it's the easiest to use. If I have to, I will use Bing, it's okay but I much prefer Google. I personally hate Yahoo, the results don't seem to be as good and the layout is horrible :p
  3. This isn't even a competition. I bet you a whole cheesecake that Google will win hands down.

  4. Seeing how everyone other than the OP has voted for google, I'd say thats a pretty safe bet XD

  5. All depends on what you're looking for. If you made the poll on what BROWSER you use there would be a lot more discussion :p. but everyone pretty much uses google.
  6. bing in the house fo sho

  9. What even are these things you speak of...
  10. Um, who picked DuckDuckGo?
  11. Duck Duck Go isn't bad at all if you look at the concept, and it works okay. Yahoo has been a lost cause since the mid 2000's.

    The problem I have with google is this: after using it some time, it will try and constantly adapt search results according to your web activity (especially if you use chrome, gmail and/or gsearch frequently).
    Example ? If I search for "Mexico", I'll get many newspaper/database/institutions/scientific article links. Now if my brother typed it, he would mostly get tourist info/tripadvisor-ish links.
    The web isn't as open as you're led to believe.

  13. But why don't you use Google? It's by far the best.

  17. Google is the easiest to use and displays relevant search results for me most of the time. Bing has a horrible layout and less relevant search results, and i'll only use it if I have to. Yahoo has a terrible layout and its search results have no relevance to what you typed.

    I've never heard of the other two. I tried to go on DuckDuckGo, but T-Mobile blocked it saying it was for over 18's only? :confused:
  18. Bing and Yahoo!'s layouts are simply eye sores and inconvenient.. I don't really care what Google does with my searches it doesn't affect me, so I use Google.
