    I was interested on what search provider everyone is using and your thoughts on why.

    I'd have to say it's a tie between Webcrawler and Google.. I prefer Webcrawer because I find it does a better job of narrowing down the search results than Google does.. ;)

    Google is #1 for me. Seems to have the most relevant links for me at the top, as opposed to Bing.

    Google is great.

    Bing/Live Search was bad. I hate yahoo. Goggle is far the best.

    But AOL's is powered by Google.

    I also tend to use Google for everything. I tried Bing but was unimpressed and noticed no major difference between it and LiveSearch. As for Yahoo I used to use it back in the early days of search providers but after using Google I never looked back. However, I do wish that someone would do what MS was aiming for with Bing only this time actually introduce us to something new and improved.

    No Google here

    I continue to use Yahoo as my primary search engine although I am becoming increasingly dissatisfied with everything about Yahoo. I loathe "Giggle" and do not trust them (with my personal information OR browsing history) and simply would not use a search function if they were the only one left. I intend to check out Bing to replace the increasingly troublesome and aloof Yahoo.

    As much as I don't like Chrome, that much I do like Google search. Not just because I am used to it, Google also works best, it is fast, simple, and accurate.
