    I know that Google is the most popular. Is there a better one? I usually can't

    find what I want on Google.

    Thanks

    I have never really had problems finding anything on Google, the problem really is knowing the right syntax to search with.

    What are some examples of things you can't seem to find?

    That being said, you can try Yahoo.com and MSN.com, those are also relatively good search engines.

    What do you mean by syntax?

    A board I mod on has twice as many links from alta vista as it does from Google.

    Thanks for answering.

    Syntax means how you type what your trying to find.

    I'm quite surprised at what results google can come up with coz sometimes it brings up stuff that have been posted in other forums. :p
    However, I have found that Yahoo gave more of the results that I've been looking for when I was researching for information for my assignments at uni.
