...and that's all that matters, isn't it? "What's best" is whatever you think is best. You have a good list of other options and I'm guessing you've tried them all. Since each search engine finds something a little differently and each user searches for different types of items, it's normal that each user may have a different preference. In my case, I use Google almost exclusively and because it doesn't load extra advertisements and such, it's my homepage. Once in a while, I use dogpile because it combines a number of search engines at once.
Use the one you like.
Hope this helps.
I was wondering if I could get some opinions on whats the best search engine?Besides the obvious Google,Altavista,alltheweb,yahoo,dogpile,Alexa(which is my favorite)I like the search engines that rank by popularity.Please & thank you !
