    Why Google?

    I'm just curious...why is it that Google is the most commonly refered search engine on this site? Is there really any advantage to using it? If so, what is it?

    I prefer it because it sorts according to relevance a lot more efficiently than most other search engines. I used to use Altavista (because it gave the best results), but moved to Google when it was still very new because I could complete my searches faster than I could with any other engine.

    I always used AltaVista and it was not bad, but when I discovered google (this was about 3-4 years ago) I never went back to AltaVista since. It just finds everything you are looking for very quickly. The technology it uses seems to work. I remember reading that people firstly didn't know why it worked so well, but hey, who cares, if it works, it works. They are the most popular search engine now and so they should be.

    I'm sure if you use it for a while, you'll understand why it's the best.

    A long time ago, I read in US News Weekly that the people who wrote and implemented the technology Google are two graduate students from Stanford. If anyone's interested in a little more about how it works, and about the two students, check out this link:
