Separate names with a comma.

I gotta say, it looks pretty sweet.
Won't be using it as it reminds me of back to the portal sites. I want to type in a search field and get results. I want it to be simple with no fancy stuff.
I will continue to use Google, and Yahoo as fall back.
And if it provides more relevant results, all the better.
I bet there's quite the buzz in Mountain View today.
Too much stuff. Like usual.
Take a look at wolframalpha for something that is actually cool.
interesting. i'll at least check it out
And I don't see 'bing' becoming a verb anytime soon. I don't know why Microsoft thinks this will be any different from any other search service they've tried (and failed) at.
They waste millions of dollars on something simply to hope that in a few years they'll dominate the field, not because they have genuine innovation and want to better the way we do things.
And Bing is just a stupid, stupid name for ANYTHING.
Google is a pretty silly name (so is Yahoo for that matter). But it's pretty obvious that Bing is a focus-grouped stupid name, which makes it even stupider. As in: "OK people, apparently internet search engines have to have stupid names. I dunno, the kids like it or something; for some reason 'Live Search' never got anywhere. So let's engineer a stupid name."
Only on a Microsoft search engine could Steve Balmer be considered "popular" (click on the image and look towards the bottom).
I just came across Bing from a video on cnn.com
I must say I was very sceptical at first, but it looks like it has some potential. I love the fact that videos show up at the top and play as soon as you roll your cursor over them. That is a great idea.
Google is the established leader, but more competition results in better services for the consumer ultimately so I support Microsoft's efforts.
(Also for a really innovative search engine that was released last month check out Wolfram Alpha. http://www.wolframalpha.com/
It takes a very different approach but it too is great).
Too much info everywhere ...
Google is simple
I like Google
wolframalpha is pretty cool though it does my maths
I'm surprised I actually like it. I like the "show similar images" feature as well.
It takes more time to load then Google because of the useless oversized background image.
I am finding bing to be much faster (at the moment) than google and the results are at least similar, no better or worse.
So far after a day or two of trials I have to say Bing is the superior product. As well as instant video playback when one performs an image search all the pictures are loading on one page negating the need to constantly click to the next page which always annoyed me.
It seems pretty good, but then again I always thought live was good too. But I always just default to using google anyway. Might try harder to use Bing a bit more.
lol when i was looking for plane tickets, i heard of this bing thing and didnt know what it was. they said i could get lower prices with bing
perhaps ill now check it out
Don't see what it offers over google, have been using google for years and it works. Don't plan on switching.
I agree with you with the (at the moment) it might be fast now, as it don't have billions of visits a day like google
