What do you search with? (Asia & Pacific Region)
Search engine choices from the east

 11:41 am on Nov 7, 2007 (gmt 0)

There're a lot of search engine names in this region; but sometimes it can be hard to know what the average internet-savvy user really uses to search.

Would you please state your search engine choice(s), and the country you come from? Finally, if you are an expatriate or a local.

For me:

Mainly use: Google.com.my, google.co.uk (other than gov sites, .com.my is suboptimal for general search compared to .co.uk)
Live in: Malaysia
Status: Expatriate (UK)
