    I use Google almost exclusively. I will have to start using others occaisionally, as I was looking for a website which I visited a few years ago and again about 6 months ago but could not remember the address or find it on Google. The guy I was talking to on IRC at the time diid a quick search on Lycos and found it.

    Back in the day I used to use quite a lot of search engines. I would look at Google, Ask Jeeves, Lycos etc. One good reason for not using Ask Jeeves any more is that they got rid of Jeeves. Ask on it's own is boring.

    Actually, Google too. The term 'googling' has become part of our vocabulary - I don't think the founders of Google expected it to become quite so big.

    I use Altavista. Only because I wanted to try something other than Google. I do use Google when Altavista fails to find what I search for, but then I don't find it in Google either. So couldn't really say which is actually better.
