On March 3, 2011, I asked the readers of the TechRepublic Microsoft Windows Blog this poll question:
I have taken a poll on this question a few times over the years looking to see if there has been any movement away from the obvious choice of Google. So far, as you can see in the responses below, there has been little to no change -- Google is the clear leader.
This is an interesting result to me, because it seems members at least try a new browser from time to time, but they stick with the proven Google for their default search engine, no matter which web browser is their current favorite.
As a follow-up to this poll result, have you even tried to use another browser-default engine recently? Was it bad or perhaps about the same and, therefore, not worth the effort?
