For general searches: Google

 

For map searches, usually Google Maps, but also Bing (Microsoft) Maps, because of the Bird's Eye View

 

Example:

 

Google Maps (satellite view): http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?f=q&sour...mp;t=h&z=19

Bing Maps (bird's eye view): http://www.bing.com/maps/default.aspx?v=2&...j&encType=1

it's pretty handy in cities, when seeing the sides of buildings is often more useful than a top-down view... you can rotate the view aswell, to see from 4 different angles :)

 

I've found it handy for finding stuff like the entrance to a retail park or the way to get into a train station by car, etc...

I like Google Map's Street view, but its so slow navigating with street view. Bird's view looks like it can do the job and faster.

Same here, i cant remember a time i've ever used anything other than Hotmail. But for searches of any sort i use google too, i guess its become one of those universal things? (want a hoover get a dyson, want a tv get a samsung ect..) but i am surprised so many people use it, despite googles blatant spying, siriously if you own google you own the world. I would'nt be surprised if secret services across the globe have some sort of contract with them :lol:

Well, Google's dominance shows by the fact that it's the only search engine turned into a proper verb.

 

I remember learning French and my teacher telling us that to google something was an er verb, essentially googler.

 

I use Google, Chrome, but Yahoo for e-mail because it would be really inconvenient to switch, especially since it has no forwarding option.

I use Google as my homepage is the iGoogle thing so it checks my email and display a bunch of other stuff there as well.
