Bing

Bing is a web search engine owned and operated by Microsoft that replaced Live Search, Windows Live Search, and MSN Search in May 2009. Unlike Google, Bing doesn’t try to interpret the question you may be trying to ask. Bing doesn’t try to match key words or phrases to your search engine. Another weakness is that Bing buries the news search off the main page, so people must click further. On the other hand, Bing is packed with search tools like Explorer Pane for refining searches. Bing is a good search engine for traveling and local results. It has an easily accessible search history with enhanced utility due to the Silverlight-enhanced format. Another thing Bing is good for is generating comprehensive and relevant image searches with limitless scrolling. According to CNN only 1 in 3 Americans use Bing. People’s opinion about Bing varies, but most people are saying they don’t like Bing. Since most people have gotten spoiled by Google and it’s many pros, people feel Bing could update. They are basically comparing Bing to Google, and Google wins almost every time. This search engine is definitely losing its popularity; nobody thinks to go to Bing.com anymore.
