Microsoft’s new search engine isn’t half bad. I’ve noticed it ranks Wikipedia,Windows Live and FaceBook profiles more prominatly than Google. There is no automatic spell-checker, or search suggestions like Google has, which is dissapointing. I’ve also not noticed the ability to search synonyms like Google can. The lack of a decent News agregstor is also a let down. However on search results alone, Bing is just as good, and certainly more visually attractive as Google.
Where Google really comes in handy is tring to find an answer to an error message or programming query. I’ll be giving Bing a test over the next few weeks.
