Bing just launched early you guys =D (the 'preview' version at least)
Go test it out! I'm pretty impressed with it so far =D

Tried it. Feels kinda new and snappy. But the interface is pretty much Google so far; particularly the top left links.

But it seems to work pretty well.

Maybe they'll change the name before moving it out of "preview."....

I know. They have once again tried to be "inventive" with naming a product.

Has anyone seen the bit where you can slide the mouse to the right of the listing and it pulls more info from the site. That is cool.

I know! I was nerdgasming XD lol
I was really impressed with Bing so far, and b/c of that, I kinda like the name now =]
it's already my default search, that way I can really test it out.
I do hope that they put the differnt search links (image, map, etc) on the left rather than the top. If you notice, for some searches they are there, but for others there's nothing. It handy when they're on the left I think.
but not a big deal if they're on the top, I'm used to it from google.
But just keep them in one place =P

I think it would be cool if they could add weather to the homepage (as you can sign in with your live account)

But other than that, it has turned out to exceed my expectations
