So true, Madhu. Goes for many things in this life.

Not me. I seldom use it. There was a time when I used it a lot when it was 
pretty good, though.

I was using Dogpile http://www.dogpile.com/ for quite some time, and that's 
especially helpful for the link maintenance that I do (I'm nuts but I 
maintain too many thousands of links for clients and my own sites). But for 
maybe the past year, I suppose, I've been using Google. Only when I don't 
find something at Google will I hop over to Dogpile. Dmoz.org has a good 
directory, too, but I seldom use it for the link searches I mention above 
but more for when I'm looking for specific topics about something.

Well, that's more than you ever wanted to know about my search engine 
habits. ;-)
