I think my search engine progressions was something like. Yahoo-->Google-->Bing/Google(with most of my searching being done on bing)

Before Google, I only used Altavista. Still, about 99% of my searches each day are performed using Google. And I've heared people used the term "google" for "searching the world wide web after desired content". I've even heard teachers say; "go google it if you're interested."

And I don't believe in minting the B.G. expression (Before Google), it's just silly :p

I used to use Yahoo. Then I joined Google's world domination scheme.

I started using internet in 2000, and I used Altavista as I remember, then I used Yahoo, but sometimes around 2002-2003 I "converted" to Google and I'm still with them, though I still use my Hotmail address that I made in that distant year of 2000... :)

Used Altavista, MetaCrawler, Yahoo, & Ask Jeeves. As others have said I could never seem to find the answer to all my questions with one search engine, had to bounce back and forth between them to find everything I wanted.

Had to think about it for a bit but I finally remembered it was Yahoo. Yahoo DID have the best porn searches from what I remember.
