I have always, and continue to, used Altavista.  I like the ability to quote 
search terms and narrow the search to only what I'm looking for.  I use Google 
when I need to do "search term site:utdallas.edu" for something, but other than 
that, I use Altavista.  Don't know what tracking they do, though.
