    Which search engine is most user friendly?

    I suppose it depends on the specific features you are looking for, but I would say that in general, Google is the most user friendly. Its interface is simple, but it also allows narrowing down of search results intuitively through the left sidebar once the search has begun. You can search for just blogs or just news, or include only sites updated in a certain time frame, just to name a few.

    However, Yahoo has some nice features for certain kinds of searches (like those in the entertainment industry). They've recently added a sort of slideshow-like presentation of relevant info along the top of results for some things (try a movie title, for example), which lets users browse the info without even leaving the search results page.

    Google is the must popular and user friendly if what you are looking is for search results.

    But! if you are trying to make an application using some search engine API (which is user level in some point of view) goole is your worst choice, yahoo api is great smile

    I think Google is the best user experience. It's clean, simple and generally accurate. Whilst yahoo an bing are close on the tails, they will need to go a long way to beet google for user experience.

    Google is the best, fast, popular and most friendly and it gives more relevant results and I also use Firefox.

    I will vote for Google. It was used to be more user friendly then today but competition with Bing has made them look heavy.

    and google has changes lots of things like filtering .user can directly go to that thing which he/she want like images,videos,news,books,places,forums.i thing this is enough to say that its user friendly.

    Google is most popular search engine and one of the reason is simplicity and ease of use.
    Bing has improved a lot lately and Yahoo has some loyal base.
    If you mean ease of use by 'user friendly', all search engines have similar working but if you really mean 'relevance of search results' then Google offers wider choice of results whereas Bing has very useful feature that displays preview of website without actually visiting website. So it becomes contextual matter which one is more useful.
