    Who uses Yahoo and Bing anymore? These two are jokes compared to Google. I will never understand how they are always behind Google even though it has been more than a decade since they have been doing business in search engine. No wonder people who are not geek and into technology uses bing and yahoo; because people who know how to use the web knows Google search is very accurate and other search engines don’t stand any where near that.
