Poll: Which search engine is the default on your browser?

Search is a pivotal part of the Web-browsing experience, but which search engine is your default choice these days?

When it comes to surfing the Web, conducting a search is the most common way of getting to a site that has the information you are looking for. As IT professionals with a higher than average level of technical savvy, it is really just a reflex. We open a browser, type in a search word, check the results, and go from there.

But the question I want to consider is which search engine is your default choice. On January 29, 2010, I asked these poll questions, and the overwhelming leader was Google, but I wonder, over a year later, if that response will change? The comparison could prove enlightening.

So, please, consider these poll questions and add to the discussion thread explaining why you use the search engine you use.
