Used to be Google, until google started getting long in the tooth (their image search feature is passable at best).

Currently, if I need a Google type answer, from a more "fresh" engine, I use MSN's beta.

For everything else, A9 has been working very well for me.

Google does the work...

Back home and checking email-- we received plenty of write-in votes for A9 (not on the list), a few for DogPile, and others. #1 was Google (about 94%) and #2 was Yahoo (40%+), so no surprises at all.

I've used MSN often since the recent beta launch. It's very fast and results appear markedly different than Google, Yahoo, et al; not sure if the results are better, just different.

Looks like a future fist-fight for search engines. Microsoft's involved in lots of fist fights these days...

Really? I find the Google image search very reliable (as long as one turns off any 'safesearch' filtering - it being set to 'moderate safesearch' by default). However, I'd be happy to try any alternatives you can suggest...

When it comes to a search engine Google is my first and second choice. Haven't used anything else in years. Especially no that Apple makes it so convient.

I've never found anyone online quite like you. What'll it take to get you to stop writing this drivel and just go out with me. Once is enough. You'll see. I don't care where you live, I'll go there. I'm spongeworthy. Honest.

Try me.

:eek:

Oh, and I love how you write. Honest. The way you slur your "...duh!" Oooh. Quiver.
