No because it gives me inconsistent results! My own site moves up & down msn's rankings like a yo-yo on speed.....so I dont "trust" it to provide decent results. I mainly use it to check how my forum is doing.

Looking at my stats for various sites, a fair few people use it - guess thats because it comes as the default homepage for explorer.

Google is still where I instinctively go when I want to search something, but I invariably fire up MSN at the same time these days, I'm still not a biggest fan of the style it has going though.

I like MSN because my forum is the first one to come up when searching for redheaded actresses. :) I believe MSN is the third largest search engine behind google and yahoo so there must be a good amount of people who will use it as their first choice, especially because it's the default homepage for explorer like BEN_MCW said.

MSN is friendly to my site... google hates me, and yahoo's impartial. :p

I don't use MSN myself, but they often give good results.

Yes... I even have it as my default in Firefox and use their desktop search all the time.

No... for some reason I can't get into MSN search. I am a google person myself.

100% Google, relevant results, lots of features (i.e. define: and currency converter etc)

I like the traffic MSN gives me but I just stick with Google for my own searching needs...

For SEO purposes it is great to see backlinks, updated much faster than Google (which obscures backlinks).
Not so great for general search (yet)
