GeneralWhat do you "Google" with? PinmemberMark_Wallace28-Aug-14 23:35 
Inspired by a comment I made in a thread below (about owning a Hoover made by Dyson), my curiosity wants to know what search engine people use to "Google" for information.
 
"Google" has become the de facto term for Internet searching, but, just like when my mother went out to buy an "Electrolux Hoover", the name has become the generic type of product, and not just the name of a company that makes one such product.
 
e.g. I'll often Google with Yahoo, because, when I've tried search-engine-comparison sites, I've always preferred the results given by Yahoo -- but I still call it "Googling".
I wanna be a eunuchs developer! Pass me a bread knife!
