critisisism of yahoo

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.

First it was sarcastic, so.... yea.

Second, it's a question so I couldn't really specify, if an answer to exactly what I asked is exactly what I desire. Basically, my question is exactly as specific as I want it to be.

Google hands down wins the best search engine compared to any other. It's very simple & easy to use, the appearance of the search results are organised very neatly & systematically. Unlike yahoo homepage which is very cluttered & clumsy & unappealing to the eyes

Side: Google

In my experience, Google is much better. Google has a powerful search engine that satisfies.
