Windows 7 Home Premium 32-Bit - Build 7600 SP1
 
 

The guy above just mentioned AltaVista. Man I had completely forgotten about that. I used that in the 90's. My favorite when I first started computing in the 90's was Web Crawler. I think I liked it because of the picture of the Spider and his Web. I just went to Web Crawler for the first time in 15 years and the picture of the Spider is gone. I could never use that search engine now. :>) == By the way, in answer to your poll Google...............

Tried Bing didn't like it at all.

Google by default as others are worse. Google isn't best just more tolerable.
Turn off/delete 90% of the junk it wants to run.

Getting almost as bad as Adobe Reader or HP Imaging software.
Download everything but the kitchen sink.

I use Google for the simple reason that I get better results when searching for solutions to software issues, Bing tends to trim the answers off of forum posts.

Search engines are like web-browsers, every ones choice is the best and they will tell you why you should be using it instead of what you prefer to use.
