Yeah definitely 100% Google. Yahoo is still biased ("pay me and Ill give you a good spot")

It's easier finding decent websites through Google because of their excellent ranking system.

Safari makes it so convienent w/ Google; however, I could hack it to take me to Yahoo! instead...I don't care as long as I get the information I'm looking for...

Why don't you like Google?
