At first when I got big into the internet, I only used the MSN Search... Blek^2! It is THE slowest search engine on the web. I have never really used Yahoo! and don't really like Yahoo! overall. I've tried Ask Jeeves before but I don't like how they put their tool bar and stuff at the top of the pages. Then I found Google. So faithful and fast...very fast! I like Google a lot... It has everything and it loads really fast which I mentioned. Yay for Google! Then the other day or so I found Alta Vista. w00t, w00t! Alta Vista rules! Plus it looks cool!

Alta Vista it's our engine! If it can't find it no engine can! Go Alta Vista! Yay! <various kicks> <pom pom waves> Yay!
