    And why?

    I've always used Google but don't know the difference between the two. Anyone care to compare and contrast, or just explain why you are using your current engine?

    On my PCs, Google, because I always have.
    My phone has a Bing button so I just use that when out and about.

    Bing.

    Rewards and I'm using as little of Google as possible until they start playing with others better.

    Same here. Not to mention it has tons of handy shortcuts that Google doesn't have, like typing "iPhone 4S !w" to go direct to the iPhone 4S's Wikipedia page :cool:

    Me too. I go to google when I need to, but my browsers are set with DDG as the default.

    Bing supposedly gets its search results from Google, so is there really a difference? ;)

    Pretty much use google. I don't like Bing, it doesn't seem to pull the information I am looking for.
