I looked at the DMOZ link and I don't think it's representative on the search engine landscape in Greece.

There are 3 "local" search engines, which index .gr - specific content. I'd say Forthnet's (using Altavista software) is the most used.

still, my stats tell me that most people (who actually "search") use google, then yahoo and then MSN (default in IE)

The general public uses in.gr, which offers free email (a la yahoo), directory and search.

still, my stats tell me that most people (who actually "search") use google, then yahoo and then MSN (fallback default of IE, which they didn't change)

It depends on the audience you're trying to reach
