Most Popular Search Engines

Google
This is one of the best search engines out there. You don't have to deal with the advertising or search directories that other search engines include. Google lists your search hits according to what sites are the most popular and most visited. There's also an 'I'm Feeling Lucky' search option. You click on the 'I'm Feeling Lucky' button and conduct your search as normal except it takes you directly to the first site on the list. Apparently the first site that Google gives you is the best site. This isn't always true but it can save you time if you know exactly what it is you're looking for.

Yahoo
Yahoo was one of the earliest search engines on the net. It hasn't continued to be the best though. You can't do advanced searches to limit the amount of hits your search will receive like most other search engines. Yahoo's site is also a place where you can shop, check your horoscope, email and the day's weather forecast. Yahoo also has a great subject directory.

Excite
Your search results are sorted not by how popular the sites are but by which sites match your keywords the best. However, Excite's site is really cluttered. If you can find the search tool sandwiched between advertising, news and more advertising, then it will do the job. You can search for images here as well, so that's an added bonus.

MSN
Like so many of the other search engines, MSN has tons of shopping options. It also has the top news headlines, a link to your Hotmail account and lots more. The actual search tool is located on the far right of the page, so it's easier to use and locate than Excite's.

AltaVista
AltaVista updates its database (that's where your search results come from) daily. They have over 31 million Web sites in their database, so you're bound to find what you're looking for. It's also a really neat and tidy site. It offers a subject directory, news and ad links - all clutter free.

Dear Friend of Israel, There is terrible news coming out of Israel right now. The Israel Defense Forces were forced to enter Gaza to end terrorist rocket fire on Israeli civilians. There will no doubt be more casualties on both sides, and immediate political pressure on Israel to withdraw. But this is a war that must be fought to ensure security for all Israelis and Jews around the world. Please join me in praying for God’s protection and a swift end to the crisis. Tonight, I ask you to pray: Pray for the men and women of the IDF who bravely and selflessly put their lives at risk for the safety and security of the Holy Land. Pray for the people of Israel, who only want to live in peace, but have so long lived under attack. And pray that this conflict will end quickly, with as little innocent bloodshed as possible. Thank you for standing with Israel and the Jewish people.
