I search for it and ‘Bing’ there it is…almost

Posted in Microsoft, technology by Sumit Thomas on June 11, 2009

I’ve been using Bing, the worlds first decision engine for the past one week. I’ve set it up as my default search engine in Chrome(and its not complaining :)). I like the images and videos section for the way it displays the search results and the ability to view or play videos inside the interface. I wouldn’t say the search results are better or even close to Google but to be fair we need to wait and see as it is still rolling out worldwide.

I guess you would have tried Bing already, if not give it a go. Here is an article on how you can set up Bing as the default search engine in various browsers http://tinyurl.com/ldjntp

Happy Binging 🙂

    I could find the only difference b/w ‘Google’ & ‘Bing’ – Bing loads cool pics as background 😉

    More on Bing…

    1) Bing is a recursive acronym for ‘Bing Is Not Google’
    2) Bing has a cool travel section where you can check and buy Airline tickets http://www.bing.com/travel
    3) The background pictures in Bing search box have few hotspots which provide some description about the picture. Right now for United States alone…
    4) You can load and view pictures and videos within the search engine itself
    5) In video results, you can hover your mouse over a thumbnail and it starts playing

    What more did you find?

    Hi,

    I wants to integrate a mail service with my site.

    If a client company already has MS Exchange or any mailing client running at the backend
    then I can build this on top of the application
    and run the emailing service.

    Any suggestion?

    Thanks
