Windows 7: I'm beginning to use Bing more than Google now, so how do I say.....

Kari, I agree. You are right, and obviously so. I think to use it with a capital B but its not necessary. The verb googled and xeroxed both do not make use of capital letters.

Stve, I understand your doubts completely and very possibly you are right. However, as I remember folks said the same about the word ain't. I can remember being corrected for using it. Now its entered the dictionary

ain't - definition of ain't by the Free Online Dictionary, Thesaurus and Encyclopedia.

Read here about the fears the Xerox company had concerning their company's name being used as a verb

Urban Dictionary: Xeroxed

Evidently Google has no such fears and why should they? Especially when making a verb of their name is free publicity.

I say ducked it....or something like that... XD Cause I use DuckDuckGo which uses Bing and several other search engines. But DuckDuckGo is full on privacy. The only reason I'm bring this up is because you mentioned privacy concerns...

Bing might make the dictionary but I doubt it will ever have a lot of users it was released in June 2009 and quickly got a 3.5% share of users where it has pretty much stayed for over 2 years.
Hoover is another example of a company having a product so successful its entered the dictionary, nowadays we have a Dyson vacuum cleaner but we still say hoovering the carpet or give the carpet a hoover.

Stve, whats your point? Are you saying we should NOT use Bing cause Google has more share? That is just silly.

Use whatever you are comfortable with my comments have more to do with any word chosen to represent the act of searching with Bing ever becoming common enough that most people would use it. Bing has been going for over 2 years now if there was going to be a word we'd have it by now.
Maybe its down to Microsoft's original choice of Bing & another name might have fared better.
My choice for a word would be Bingled
Urban Dictionary: Bingled

Right because Google was used as a verb 2 years after it was created...*rolls eyes*

Google is a good word everyone naturally used to Google or I Googled when it became the dominant search engine which it very quickly became.
Bing its not so clear cut, Binge & Binged are already in wide use which leaves Bingle & Bingled .
