What is your favourite search engine?

Mine is Google, I like it because I always find what I want there.
AltaVista isn't bad, I think it has good accuracy, but I don't use it often, because Google does the job.

Google rules!, I dont use anything else, and with the image search now it makes it even better. On Opera I have the little search bar, you can download it for IE, but, whenever I need something I as the magic google.

Only qualm is those pesky Flash ads... :mad:

google

...I mean, news, images, and newsgroups all in one.

Google has helped me find alot of things fast!
I'll turn up downloads for stuff that's hard to find in the first search result just by searching google "correctly".

small example:
My g/f wanted to find the rom for Q*bert arcade, but gave up after searching for a few hours. After she told me, I sent it to her as google returned it to me as the first site listed in the search results. First site had a working download. The other thing about google is it's no bullcrap - straight forward searching slave. No annoying interface and very little ads.

Heh, I searched for books..
1 - 10 of about 83,200,000. Search took 0.09 seconds
That's a cool feature too.

I second the Yahoo! bit, nothing wrong with Yahoo!
