Do You Search Through the Google Homepage or the Address Bar?

When I pointed out yesterday that people who use Google's homepage to search tend to be less technologically inclined, some people took it very personally. To be honest, I use Google.com probably a third of the time, myself, but still think it's safe to say that if you never use the address bar you're probably not a gadget guy.

But what say you, tech enthusiasts? Is the homepage a relic for the uninitiated? Is the address bar where the cool kids hang out? Or is it just possible that like all things in life it's a healthy mix and we probably shouldn't take it so seriously?
