    Yahoo. Google sometimes seems more broad, but also extremely variable.

    Which-ever one that gets me the answers that I need without a lot of pop-ups, hype, go here first then go there before getting to what you need and ooohh lookie here!

    Whichever one works best. I've used several if I can't find the specific thing that I'm looking for.

    Google. Best search algorithms, widest database.

    How do you mean, "extremely variable", Feisty?

    I like Dogpile because it's search results are compiled from the best results from all the other search engines: Google, Yahoo, Ask Jeeves, About, Looksmart, Teoma, OverTure, Findwhat....

    I find it to yield the most complete results.

    I use google and sometimes askjeeves if I can't figure out the right terms to look for and feel like a normal question would be easier.

    google, it hasn't failed me yet and I like being able to change languages every once in a while just to mess with my kids. Klingon is fun, so is Elmer Fudd.

    usually yahoo! since it's my home page...and my yahoo mail account...

    all search engines like google and yahoo are iffy...especially if you're looking for a certain product...because, certain companies, give "contributions" to make sure their sites are at the top of the results123
