Anything Goes

Postby Jenski » Sun Feb 01, 2009 2:54 am

Other than Google? Since I search largely for pics, MSN - it's a royal pain to deal with but it has provided me with some really unique finds for many years.

In my experience, everything else is useless.

I like Google but I might try out Bing and see what happens.

I only use yahoo and google these days. And yahoo is going to hell fast. They should have sold out to Microsoft while they had the chance.
