MSN has launched a new beta search engine (http://beta.search.msn.com/), supposed to rival google. I have given it a go, and I'm not impressed so far. It is also very much a clone of google, but too cluttered.

Google is search of choice for me!

Google can even do maths - its great!

Try searching for "what is 4500 kilovolt amps in horsepower?" and it gives the answer!

Looking at the results so far the poll question should have been:

I use Google: Yes / No

and the tally would still be 100% in favour of Google

I always use google!

But.... Why is Ask Jeves not on the list?

That is a commonly used engine!

But.

You were given a reference figure for horsepower in that question, so don't take the real life answer as 'gospel' with reference to your course work question
