Well, sometimes I do it when I need to know how to spell something or when I am looking for a forum.




Sorry if this is made.

Actually, I use Google to do a lot of things.
I basically start doing everything from it. I use it a whole lot.

The first thing I do when I get on the internet is everyday is to go to Google.
From there, I go to all the other places I need to, search for thing like music, documents, pictures, writings - and I do that a lot.
I also use it to find out the meaning of an unknown word for a first bet using define:word search.

But for spelling, I've got my spell checker in Firefox. Otherwise, I use Google for that too sometimes.

If there's something I don't know, I Google it. It's quite sad really but that's the truth.

I don't use it that much. Well, not anymore after I bookmarked Wikipedia and Dictionary.

It still gets about fifty visits from me daily, however. :<

Enh, a couple times. I hate it when I have a REALLY long question and don't know how to shorten it, so I don't know if writing something too long into the search box will find any answers for me. Then I never find out the answers and ask on a forum / people I know because you can actually talk to people about it and stuff.

Well I certainly do. I'd get banned or arrested naming half the stuff I use it for though.

I use Google for everything, but I rarely go to Google's homepage, since I have the Google Toolbar! :D

Google is probably one of my most (ab)used websites. I mean, it's so convenient and easy to look up anything you want to know.

Yeah. I use Google Chrome as a browser, so why not use Google as a search engine? ;)

Every day. Hell, I probably have used Google in the past ten minutes for something.

Yes. For answers, to find free-ware etc. I just ate how they joined up with Youtube, just ruined something for me today. I was going to make a new account, but I think I wanted to use a new Hotmail account but it requested Goofle and something went wrong. So when I tried again, it said my username was in use which really annoyed me. So now I had to add "Mr" to the username >:[

Google is third in my "top used sites" list. The first is PC and then my own forum.

Yes. Most people need to use a search engine almost daily. Research shows that about 80% people in the world use Google; the rest use Bing and Yahoo.
I use Google for almost everything that pops into my mind.

I don't actually take the time to type "google.com," because who has that kind of time? I just type it into the address bar on Chrome, which is the same thing as doing a search on google.com. I use it a lot, mostly for spelling and definitions, but sometimes song lyrics or if someone told me "lol u should google this its hilarious lol."

What on Earth is "Google"? Sounds like a synonym for a monocle...

It's the most reliable search engine for me out there, I love it. I use it everyday. It's amazing how helpful it is.

... when i dont feel like adding ".com" to the end of a website.


you know that with firefox, you can type in the address bar , for example:

'google'

and then hit ctrl+enter and it automatically adds '.com' and fetches the website...



Just thought I'd let ye know :)



I use Google when I'm searching for anything interesting or a wiki article...also for definitions and long calculations, measurement conversions etc...

I find google extremely useful, as I use it for everything, music, pictures, information, guides, tutorials...everything, and for some reason I like it more than Yahoo or Ask, cause I usually get the results I want from Google. :P

That isn't just a Firefox feature, Chrome does the exact same thing, as does Opera... and Internet Explorer.

I don't use Google. I prefer to use either Bing or Yahoo. They seem to give more... useful results, but that's just me. I have Bing set as my default search engine, so I generally just type whatever into the address bar and then hit enter. I generally go for an IMDb search if it's about TV, movies, or an actor, or if it's something that that I know will have a Wikipedia page, I'll search there first.
