I normally use Yahoo! because I don't like the way Google redirects 
every link through itself. Yahoo! does for some but I can either type 
in the visible URL or extract it if necessary.

With Google alerts it's easy to select and launch the embedded link in 
Messenger Pro so I don't have to go through Google. However I haven't 
noticed any particular problems with it.

I don't want a "user experience" - I just want stuff that works.
