    I use Yahoo to see the latest news headlines.

    I use Google for searching the web.

    I visit both sites regularly, but I think Google's better because the search engine is fantastic.

    yahoo is ruined by the people who use it.
    c++->visualc++->directx->opengl->c++;
    (it should be realized my posts are all in a light hearted manner. And should not be taken offense to.)

    I believe the poll results say it all. And I did vote for the winning team. Whoever voted for Yahoo should be banned.
    Do not make direct eye contact with me.

    I use Google for everything 'cause it's built into Firefox and it also owns.
    Naturally I didn't feel inspired enough to read all the links for you, since I already slaved away for long hours under a blistering sun pressing the search button after typing four whole words! - Quzah

    google for everything... usually for news I just go to /. unless I want real news... then I watch TV or go to a news website or news.google.com... their front page is also alot more welcoming than yahoo's... yahoo tries to give you too much information, 99-100% of which you won't need during the search you went there for...

    for games I just go to newgrounds or something...

    What are you talking about? /. is more real than anything you see on TV. IT'S ALL LIES! Don't listen to those phony newscasters with their phony smiles and their phony stories!

    For news I always use RSS with a sidebar plugin I dl'ed for Firefox. Mostly /.

    If I had the addresses of the people who marked Yahoo, I'd send them a box full of my dog's fecal matter.
