Google

Google is well-known for its web search service. As of August 2007, Google was the most used search engine on the web with a 53.6% market share, ahead of Yahoo! (19.9%) and Live Search (12.9%). Google indexes billions of Web pages, so that users can search for the information they desire, through the use of keywords and operators. Google has also employed the Web Search technology into other search services, including Image Search, Google News, the price comparison site Google Product Search, the interactive Usenet archive Google Groups, Google Maps. Google, besides from their popular search engine, released various other services, such as email service popularly known as Gmail which was the result of 6 years of extensive research, the social networking site popularly known as Orkut; video sharing service such as Google video and later it also acquired You Tube for the same. From this video sharing a new form of entertainment has emerged, MACHINIMA. Google also have their advertisement program in Gmail, where in if the user is getting a mail from a particular company, he/she can see the related articles or news in the right hand side of the mail window. Google also introduced Google Earth, for which they acquired a Satellite. Through Google Earth, any user can visit any place in earth virtually, and can locate his/her home, office etc. In October 2007, Google SMS service was launched in India allowing users to get business listings, movie times and information by sending an SMS.
In the future Google plans to release a Google phone to compete with Apple"s iPhone, which is known as project Android. But Google officials deny this often and term it a rumor. Google is also developing various other services, which are in Beta phase, such as Google Scholar; Google Spreadsheet program, through which users can download the word document and view it online. So it doesn"t require any other Office suite preinstalled in users system.

Yahoo

Criticism
Yahoo has received criticism for funding spy and advertisement technologies. In this case, advertising from Yahoo's clients appears on-screen in pop-ups and through these users may sometimes accidentally install ad ware or spyware on their computer. This feature has received stern criticism from the media, and internet users, due to media scrutiny relating to paedophiles utilising the internet as a means to collect child pornography, and a lack of significant ad revenues, and later it was closed down on June 2005.

I'm fighting a loosing battle hear, but why not.

There is evidence to support Googles superiority but there is undeniably some things Yahoo does better, or for that fact; Google doesn't do at all.

Yahoo Answers is my best weapon of choice. Its free, has a range of answers and is used by everyone aged 4 to 84. You can sign up and ask any question you want and an answer almost immediately. Great huh! Need help on your homework? Someone's probably already asked, so your answer is already there, plus the trolling is absolutely hilarious.

While they aren't discrediting their own search engine, they've had years to establish other parts of their brand which help it compete against Google as a total package. The total package is the first thing we should look at, in regards to each search engine"s homepage. Compared to Google, Yahoo offers quite a lot.
Yahoo local was the first engine that was able to search for local businesses. Win!

And Yahoo Mail gives 1 free TB. Enough said.
