After seeing a couple of commercials on the new search engine Bing, I decided to give it a try and I have to say that for me, it is much better than Google. I did a search on several different topics using both Bing and Google and Bing did a better job of returning more information in every case.

Anyone else finding the same thing? Has anyone else even tried Bing or have a SE that you think works best?

I like it, I've been using it for a while, and I like it much better than Google.

Yup, but before it gets moved, I can't stand Bing.

I used it once and wasn't that impressed..... But now that you bring it up I'll look again...

Just did and still not impressed...

I entered "spinning throw tops" and here are the results...

Bing - Customize your browser with Bing


spining throw tops - Google Search

Same thing I noticed the last time I tried it...

i'm starting to use it more because i've come to dislike the politics behind google, although google results are usually better than bing, for my purposes.

where bing really excels is maps - especially the bird's eye function

What OS are you using? If not Windows, do you use MS Office?
