I use Google because it consistently gets the most useable links. Bing still has a way to go (and I can't see anyone saying "Just bing it")

I've also used dogpile (Dogpile Web Search), a meta-search site.

I prefer Google, but not by any wide margin, just most comfortable with it. Bing gives me more inconsistent search results, or at least it seems that way to me? Yahoo is ok, but then I prefer google.

I've been using Yahoo! as long as I can remember. I don't like Google because it's biased. Google search engine prioritizes their links to sites that have Google ads on them first. Yahoo seems to list links that are more relevant to search queries.

I use Google all the time. I haven't really given Bing much of a chance but Google works for me.
I also use Gmail, Google Talk, Google Wave, Google Docs, Picasa.

Maybe I should get some shares like Valtonray

Search Engine ?
Hello, Is there a free, or inexpensive, search engine that will search the text in the documents in all my files, and not just by file name ? In other words, literally searching every text word on PC, wherever it might be, looking for a match. Thanks, Bob
