Google, naturally, but DogPile gets an honorable mention... just for being called DogPile. I used to use it back before the Google boom.

Definitely Google, and also Wikipedia if you can classify it as a search engine.

Live Search. Good results...cleaner interface than the others.

I do use ask.com sometimes though. Using "ask eraser" is a clever idea.

Well I normally just use Google, but often at school I use [url=www.blackle.com[/url]. Exactly why, I really don't know. I also use Live Search here and there, along with DogPile.

-Mainly Google.

I use google, but when that doesn't work, I fall back on ask.com, which is a little more specific.

No google is just way too vague. A friend searched "the beast" and came up horse porn.

Well your friend shouldn't have been looking for horse porn anyways.

Tell him to flip on Safesearch. It filters out horse dongs. Or so I hear.

You just have to know how to word your queries to get what you want. I'd imagine it'd be the same on any search engine...

Yeah pretty much Google, I used to use HotBot, because you could filter out certain words. Like if you wanted to do a search on something like adult entertainment but filter out all references to XXX(yes there is such a thing) you wouldn't have to wade through 10M web sites to find something that you wanted.
