    Now that Bing own Yahoo, there is no real point, from our research most use Google, then split between Yahoo and bing. Yahoo also aggregates from Google.

    I use google when I want to search for something, but it's fairly boring by itself. I like the news, videos, etc that are linked from Yahoo.

    All of you are very contributing. I must say that we are not going to degrade any search engine. We are just trying to identify pros and cons.

    It's not that I prefer Google or Yahoo over the other. Both is giving good results and for that, I have no complaints. Yahoo also features news on their site so it's easy for people to read it.

    Search is not the only thing between these 2 Giants. Even, there are many other things like email, content (news, sport updates etc), Messenger etc. So, people will be using different services from the yahoo. No matter what they use or why they use.

    Yahoo was established years before Google was even thought about so most people still use some of the old facilities,i still use alot of things on Yahoo for that reason.
