    i find it to be quite nice. ive always liked google for its minimalist approach and thats the same reason ive always hated yahoo. Live search is almost like google, no ads no nonsense but its something different as well. idk i was just wondering if anyone here uses it, i have it as my safari homepage (its kind of weird if u think about it) i dont kno, i was just wondering if you've tried it out heres the link

    http://www.live.com/

    i also like the new picture new information everyday thing too

    The only reason I used live search was for the cashback they did a while back.

    Google is way better, and has more indexed pages/ results.

    Gives awful results in comparison to Google. DEpending on what you want to search for, different engines can be better, but for day to day stuff, Live is atrocious in comparison to Google.

    Yeah why bother using Live search when Google is pretty much in all ways a better search?

    I like their maps better than Google for some things. They have a birds eye view, which allows you to take views from all directions.
