Windows 7: New Bing Bar available for download today

17 Feb 2011   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate (SP1)
New Bing Bar available for download today

Today we are excited to announce the launch of Bing Bar, available for download here. Engineered from the ground up, the new Bing Bar gives you quick access to all the stuff you do online. Conducting a search, checking Facebook or keeping tabs on email, Bing Bar centralizes the most common things you do while helping you discover new features that let you get the most out of Bing. Because we know you don’t have time to read manuals or watch ‘how to’ videos, Bing Bar exposes features so you can find what you need and get more done.

We took a back to basics approach for this release, guided by one key principle: make the stuff you do every day online easier. We took a look at what makes our customers happy, how people use our products, and where they spend time online. The feedback was clear. People want an easy way to stay informed about the things they care about (such as Facebook, email, breaking news, weather and traffic).

Good things: Translator is back and FB addon
Bad things: Autofill is gone and not sure why you cant put widgets on left or right and they are always in the middle....

Yeah, I agree SoLoR. I actually like the look for use on IE9. It's not as intrustive as other toolbars. I'll give it a shot for a while

If you are using Bing and have it set to the United Kingdom you can see a whale (?) swimming somewhere icy waters. Beautiful. It's the second time, that I know of, that Bing has moving objects in its UK webpage.
