Can You Put Down the Google Pipe?

Google is unquestionably the number one search engine today. The numbers don't lie. But is there a trend developing of people giving up their Google habit? According to the second chart in the example above, the G line does seem to be slightly dropping during August per projections, with the others rising. So, what other engines are people using to quell the urge to google? (Apologies to G for using "it" as a verb)

There is an lengthy thread going on at WebMasterWorld Forums asking "Does anyone here still use Google to actually 'search'?" The premise of the original poster is that

for a few months now I've been Google-free. The time I waste desperately hacking at the Advanced Search options on Google to try and get some sort of answer to my query is just too much and I'd rather wait the extra milliseconds for Yahoo/MSN pages to load.
3 pages so far of pro and con opinions lead to an interesting read.
