Bing - New search facility from Microsoft

5.6.09

Microsoft have made its next step in the course of cold war between itself and Google. While Google is reinventing e-mails with the Goolge wave or basically with waveprotocol, Microsoft have released their fully furnished single room search engine.."Bing"..Bing is simple as its name unlike their earlier search engines whose pages i always hated to visit. The simple looks might be inspired by the success story of Google, but Bing is not just about simple looks, it is making the search also simpler with its features like a list of similar searches in a left pane. "Similar searches" might be the simpler one when compared with the image search features.....
