Yahoo served some 2.6 billion searches, trailed by Microsoft with 1.4 billion, Ask with 552 million, and AOL with 412 million.

    Great to see Bing doing well, I use it for simple searches, it just adds a bit of colour to the day. Although I must say it would be a problem to use back home in africa due to dial up still being used. For more complex searches I still use google. A "bit" of competition is always good!

    I personally like Yahoo, I always receive great search results and I love their homepage and Answers page. If I can't find something on Yahoo I try Google.
