I have an iMac computer and I just noticed under Safari Preferences I have a choice of search engines. My default is set for Yahoo but I can choose Google as my default engine. I would like your opinions as to which you would consider better. Thanks.

Ive usually use Google but used to Scroogle when I was feeling paranoid:-) Scroogle is gone these days but there's always DuckDuckGo.

Yahoo is my least favorite search engine. Google is probably the best one, but they track you - of course they all do to some extent. DuckDuckGo doesn't track you, but their results are less than stellar. I tried using it, but quit because of it. Of course, if enough people use it, maybe it will improve. Bing isn't too bad - I would rank it right below Google.

I'm using Startpage myself (it doesn't track you).

I never heard of Startpage Smiley. I'll check it out too. Thanks.

WoW! I went to the site and it sounds pretty impressive Smiley. How long have you been using it?
