So Bing.com, not a tribute site to the only bearable character off the sitcom Friends but Microsoft’s latest attempt to rule the homepage world, Bill Gates spending $100m to publicise it. Previously they had sublet the gig to people like AltaVista and Looksmart to do the page sorting and...

ConsCluttered homepage, catchprase

With so many search engines available on the internet, it’s hard to know which one to choose. Google is the name on everyone’s lips, and has even become a verb (when asked to look something up one might be asked to ‘Google it’). Google is the gold standard that other search engines should be...

“Better the Devil”

ProIt does a good job, but no better than Google

Consnone it does a good job

Intro I’m a confirmed fan of Google search, I find it easy, user friendly and although there are times you are fed pointless leads in general it does what I want it to do. I can’t say that I use search providers frequently, but I do use them regularly so I like to know what I’m doing. Bing I took...

“Being at Bing”

ProRead the review

ConsRead the review

Doing a review on bing.com I thought it prudent in the beginning to have a comparative write-up of existing search engines but the practicality of my purpose is hardly feasible. Let’s just have check of the best available search engines. This is what you get with a google search: 1) Ask. 2) Yahoo...

ProFast, Concise Results

ConsNothing that different from Google

Introduction ‘Bing’ is Microsoft’s attempt at breaking into a market once inhibited by ‘Ask Jeeves’ and ‘Infoseek’, but entirely (now and then) dominated by ‘Google’. But at a time when ‘Wolfram Alpha’ is available, one can’t help but wonder, have Microsoft left it too late? To conduct this...

Bing.com Introduction Bing.com used to be the search engine for Windows Live search engine, and is the search engine for Microsoft, so isn’t run by a 3rd party company like Yahoo or Google. It is a very new search engine, and so at the minute not many people use it, or are even aware of it. It...

ProGood results. Less clutter in results than Google.

ConsPoor shopping tab.

Bing.com is Microsoft's latest search engine. Perhaps you have never heard of it. Well, Microsoft have a history of choosing obscure and confusing names. We have Microsoft, Hotmail, MSN, live.com and now bing.com. General Bing.com Going to the homepage of Bing brings up a page not too different...

ConsHaven't found any yet.

Windows Live has now been renamed Bing.com. The new homepage is totally different and a lot more interesting and exciting to look at than the old Windows Live Search was. Today's background is a computerised Arab desert town. When you click on various parts of the picture it gives you information...

Bing.com - Is it worth switching from google? Microsoft has just announced Bing, as it desperately tries to find a way to take market share away from Google. Whether you love the new name or not–personally, I think it’s a huge improvement on Windows Live Search–you owe it to yourself to go and...

Excellent alternative to Google! The current Beta version is a very clear site with search options in 'web', 'videos', 'images', 'shopping', 'news', 'maps' and more. Search results are very satisfactory and I always managed to find everything I needed to research. Especially the video search function is fantastic as you can see extracts of each video just by hovering the mouse over a video. I also like the daily bing image, which is particularly nice if you use this website as your homepage. The shopping link leads users straight to this website, Ciao. Easy to use if you are interested in buying a particular product. All in all I find Bing is a very pleasant experience and I will stick to it for my daily searches.

When it comes to searching and sorting images, it is fact much superior. The page design is straightforward, with an emphasis on a clean simple...
