    I did not use yahoo search engine from 2008-2011. Since three months I prefer to use Yahoo. In the past, I could find in Google what I am searching for (usually the third,forth,.. , seventh displayed result). Now, ….. I really love Wikipedia, but usually the stuff in Wikipedia is not what I am looking for :(. I don’t know why I was not using yahoo in the past although the quality of the results are comparable with the old good Google and now even better than the new updated Google.
