the only case I've seen people using Ask is when they didn't realize their search bar has been changed by a "free" program they recently installed.

I'm surprised so many people still use yahoo, microsoft I can understand as its the default search in IE.

Well i used to love Yahoo search but since MS got involved with them it has gone down hill. I used to be able search on there and get what i wanted without any issue but like yesterday i did a normal search and ended up on a game app crack site.

And as for bing it's like my ass most of the time giving out shit.

And i would use a OTHER before using Google..
