    When looking something up or just searching for a special thing, do you prefer Yahoo, Google, Ask Jeeves, Alta Vista, The New engine called Bing or is there another that you use?

      google - i think Bing is going to be a huge competitor to it.

    Google has actually over 80% of the global search engine market. The remaining 20% is shared between Yahoo, Bing etc.

    One of the major drawing factors to why people chose Google (Including myself) was it's sheer simplicity and uncluttered screen presentation.

    If only a cell phone manufacturer could replicate what Google did for Search Engines, I would be more than happy to buy one!

    None of the above. I like scroogle:

    Which is google's results without cookies or ads or records. Much more accurate results. Especially of you want to check your own site's status.

    I Google mostly because it is convenient to type and they are rather relevant even though the SEO clowns trying tricks are making it less so. Mamma, the mother of all search engines, is good too to get some results different than Google.

    Google! Mainly because it's more fun to say "I googled it" than "I searched online"

    Is google acctually a verb?

    Google, it was actually one of my daughter's first words and she learned how to use it before she could read by simply typing in the names of her toys; pokemon, littlest pets. She eventually became convinced that you could just add .com to whatever you were looking for. We almost had a disaster when she tried to get me to take her to girls.com. This is not a site for girls..

    I may be old fashioned but Google is the absolute in search engines.  I do use Bing somewhat and every now and then Yahoo.  form the majority of the time, Google is it.
