Google gains, Yahoo drops in U.S. search engine market share According to numbers from HitWise, Google remains the dominant search engine in the U.S. market, controlling almost three-fourths of the market.
For September, Google captured 72.15 percent of the market, dominating all 68 other search engines monitored by a long shot.

Yahoo fell from 14.2 percent to 13.5 percent, and Bing remained mostly unmoved at 10.1 percent.

Because Yahoo now uses Bing's engine, Microsoft can claim 23.6 percent of the market.

Ask took fourth place, moving to 2.37 percent.

AOL and the other 65 search engines took the remaining share.

Yahoo generates more accurate and on-point results. Not my opinion.................fact.

Google has a lot of fluff and is last to make cutting edge search-assisting changes. Again.............not an opinion, fact from 14 years of using both.

>my uneducated opinion is fact

Get defense there buddy. Also unlike Yahoo! (and Bing for that matter), Google has virtually nothing else on screen other than what you're searching for, so you GET to your results quicker without distractions.

Besides, you're only 14, your logic is invalidated.
