Microsoft’s ‘Bing’ Goes Live In Beta

Bong, bong, bong, no BING! Microsoft has launched their latest rendition of their new search vehicle called Bing in beta format. The new search is designed to replace Live Search and according to their web site will make finding such things as travel, shopping, health and local stuff easier to find. When you enter into the Bing site you will notice a plain Jane search box similar to what Google has.

But will Bing be enough to garner market share against the likes of Google? That question will be answered as more folks start to use the new search engine. Over at TechCrunch they state:

My thoughts on Bing: I like it. And I’d consider using it as my search engine. But like many people I’m used to Google and I know how to find the things I’m looking for. Bing returns very different results for a lot of queries, which is great. But it also means spending time learning how to use Bing to get what you need out of it. I’ll spend that time because it’s my job. But for most people, they’ll stick to what they know, and that’s Google.

That says it all. I tried Bing and it works just fine. But whether I change from Google to Bing can not be answered as of yet.

Try Bing and let us know what you think.
