    What do you mean?

    - Using Google as default PERSONAL SE? (in this case: yes)
    - Using Google Search as default website SE? (no and yes. I will add it as a additional option: "Power Search")

    Google is the most used search engine on the Internet. And when you Google "Google" - it's the first thing that pops up!

    how does this relate to 'promotion techniques'?

    maybe he wants to know which major sites use google's search results? otherwise I don't see the point

    Same here. Besides getting good results, I think users really trust Google to load quickly without cluttering the screen with ads or links to unwanted stuff.

    for lack of a better homepage, I have set google as my homepage.

    I'm using mozilla and the Google searchbox at the top right hand corner is my default 'search engine'. I very rarely use the default homepage to search, hehehe

    It's mine default too. My personal opinion is that more techies use it, while the business people, non-tech are more towards Yahoo.

    What can I say, Google has the best search engine.

    i think it is safe to say nearly everyone uses google for searching. google has grown so much in the past few years, even those who aren't very technically savvy know of google.

    As of Tuesday anyone who downloads Firefox 1.0 for the first time will have Google search as their start page.

    Google as my homepage. But for some strange reason now when I open a new tab it doesn't go straight to my home page, it leads to a blank page.

    Give me Yahoo. I think the WauW factor on Google is overrated.
