Not a whole lot, actually.  I like Google better for two reasons:

1.  More robust search engine (IMO).
2.  You aren't required to pay to have SMTP/IMAP connectivity to Google mail (GMail) as you are with Yahoo so you can use your favorite mail client to send/receive email on Google.  I like Yahoo's web interface better than Google, but the ability to use mail clients without paying is a plus.

Familiarity and habit mostly.  Google is my start page.  I prefer Yahoo Finance for market data though.  Mostly just out of habit though.

Depends.

I use Yahoo for my home page.  I like their customization better then the others.  Their home pages just has a better look.

I've tried Google's iGoogle home page, but I just don't use it as much.

I use Google for searching and you can't beat Google Calendar for a calendar program.  Google calendar also syncs with just about any other device, including my Blackberry.

I also use Google's Picasa for a photo management program.  It is also tops.  Do I need to mention Google Earth, Google Maps, .....

iGoogle.

I was in the first 1,000 users of gmail (remember gmail invites?) and LOVED the sort, filter, and search abilities it offered.

The search engine is clean and efficient.

Google maps is my favorite, and streetview has only increase that.

Google docs is useful.

I use picasa.

My customized homepage works well for me.

Google needs to split it's stock 3 for 1 and all will be well.  As of now they are too big for their pants and are starting to act that way.

How would splitting their stock change that?

Yahoo might think about doing the same; they need to dump Flickr since I don't think it's really all that functional with Yahoo.

And although I like Google, I use Flickr for my photos.  I have the Pro account ($24.95/year), so it's unlimited space and uploads.  I was less than impressed with Picasa.

I use yahoo as my home page and my main e-mail, I also have a lycos page and secondary e-mail address for when I dont want certain companies e-mailing me. I have had my yahoo e-mail for ten years now and cant even imagine if I was to loose it after all this time.
Google of course is my search monster and I was using mapquest,mapblast etc,etc but have now switched to Google since they upgraded their mapping system.

Google is best for search. It uses a lot of factors to rank sites so the most likely result you are looking for is at the top. I've had trouble finding sites on yahoo using text copied-and-pasted off the site. I use gmail, google calendar, google docs, google reader and a lot of other features and everything is free.

If you want to look at stocks, read the news, or meet people, go to yahoo.
