Africa S Hands compares the search features and other services provided by the three search engines, and concludes that, although it is a case of ‘horses for courses’, Bing and Yahoo! still lag behind in some areas.

Does the fact that Google is now a verb make it a better search engine than Yahoo! and Bing? Africa S Hands compares the search features and other services provided by the three search engines, and concludes that, although it is a case of ‘horses for courses’, Bing and Yahoo! still lag behind in some areas.

What’s inside

While performing similar tasks, Google, Yahoo!

But each is sure to have its followers whether for its filtering options, ability to search quickly for information using particular content partners, or its page preview feature.
