search engines

This poll partly stems from a conversation with a friend who's convinced that Google rules the internetz, run for your lives! Er, while Google is the most popular search engine and not exactly mindful of your privacy, there are n00bs innocents who get trapped by AOL's aggressive marketing tactics and the charming face of Ask.com, Jeeves. Oh, wait. Jeeves is gone, isn't he?
