Just testing a few random things, it doesn't offer a huge difference from Google, which it would need to (especially given the MS hate out there)... and a fatal flaw; it shows all of your recent searches on the sidebar by default...

I haven't used it yet, but I do think someone at Microsoft has a deep love for all those old "On the Road to...." movies.

You know, the ones with BOB Hope & BING Crosby.

I'm sure Bing will be a much better piece of software than Bob was.

i made it my default for chrome just so i can see if it's any good and to get used to it

so far, it seems reliable...really like the traffic/weather searches as it shows you the local info...also, the medical searches provide relevant and respected sites
