Advantages: great search engine
Disadvantages: google maps/directions
I have been using Google.com for at least 10 years now (ever since I have been properly using a computer really!), and I think it is by far the best search engine around. It is so easy and simple to use. All you have to do is type in what you are looking for, whether it be a website or an image and it comes up within seconds.
I also used Google scholar when I was at university. This site is also fantastic, as it allows you to access journals and studies that have scientific or theoretica knowledge, which I found excellent, and a lot easier than going all the way to my uni library to find the same information.
I am also a regular user of Google maps and directions. However, I have found a problem using this service. When I try to change part of the route it shows me, the whole thing seems to go a bit crazy and get lost. I did it the other day and the first 19 steps of the route were how to get to the end of my road, which included making 4 u-turns!
Summary: all in all a great site
