I... honestly can't remember if I used anything before Google or not. I can't remember if I ever searched for anything. For now, Bing is my default search engine. I still use Google occasionally, especially when I just need more results on whatever I'm looking for (often programming stuff).

I used just about everything that existed before Google, in fact I still use Dogpile today.

I first started using Dogpile. I then moved on to Ask Jeeves. I now use Yahoo! I like the customizable My Yahoo page much better.

I think I used Altavista the most. I had tried Excite, Lycos, Hotbot and Yahoo for brief periods of time.

I very rarely use google. I used Yahoo for years, and then Bing. My IE9 default search provider is Bing.
