Google and Google Maps still do what I need. I seldom use others intentionally. I have learned to structure searches, visually sift and skim results, and usually select quickly what I seek.

I also often find Google Local/maps and Adwords results useful when shopping for businesses or products.

Google. I have always used it and never had an issue finding something where I would have had to use another search engine.

I use ask.com. I used to use Google only, but a few years ago their search became about the products for the best part which gets annoying after a while. I do use Google from time to time but would never use any of their aps. Yahoo is something I used once and found their search results to be crappy.

Bingle.nu ---

I search Google and Bing at the same time and compare the results on a split screen.

I use bing for two reasons. It's at the top of IE8 which saves a few clicks.
Yahoo and google have too many tracking cookies and other info tracking. I'm sure bing is doing the same thing but I'm not aware of it yet.
