The Yahoo faithful haven't given up... slighlty surprising. I guess when you don't know any better you stay.
That's true...I think the only thing Yahoo users hang on is really because of their messenger, not wanting to change Yahoo e-mail, like you said, they just don't know any better. Yahoo's search results are horrible. I try a search on them every once in a while for different stuff for a good, hearty laugh. MSN is going through its spells, better one day, next poor...but, they are making far better strides than Yahoo and that's putting it nice.
