    Bing seems to be playing the 'confidence' card a lot - which worries me. It's going to take a fair bit for me to build trust that it can find me the best price on a flight/hotel, or the best deal on a product - and I'm pretty adaptable to change.

    That said -- I'm finding very little to dislike at the moment.

    Yep it is very fast for me. It feels like it's running locally on my PC.

    Google, lift yer game! 1 second is too slow.

    Yeah I agree.

    I am seeing some interesting results in terms of relevance though

    I wonder how many of you "Microsoft critics" use Windows?!

    I think that diversification of search engines and end of Google's hegemony would be very healthy for all.

    I will test the bing.com and hope it will be a useful tool.

    Many of us used to. That's one of many things that transformed us into Microsoft critics (tripling Apple's market share along the way).

    I hope the new SEO is much better than previous one. Does any one give a tour to bing? How is it? I need to know. Though I have visited but couldn't find that much different.

    Click the "Tour Bing" link at the top left of the bing homepage

    And watch the video at http://www.decisionengine.com

    ~~

    On a separate note, they did a better job integrating the Cash Back stuff with shopping this time around. I had forgotten about it until I started playing with Bing, but since I went through an eBay ad there, I got some cash back on the spare battery I was buying for my laptop.

    Do we have to search for certain products for the money back?
    Have a good day.

    I do not know why the domain name has been changed from live to bing. Is it the name that is going to make things best? I believe it is not. How well you provide the service matters and the change of domain name make nothing.

    Cash Back is offered on a per-store basis not per product. If you're doing a normal web search, any ads leading to a store that offers Cash Back will have a Cash Back icon under the ad (like eBay ads).

    If you click the shopping tab and browse/search for products, then any price lists will show the cash back percentage.

    Ex: http://www.bing.com/shopping/Hewlett...rce&FORM=ENCA3

    They have a lot of sites signed up for it

    It looks nice and it is incredible fast. Need to test it properly and compare to Google's results to give it a final vote but... yep, nice.

    I tried to find the link, but I couldn't find it. Maybe because it is still a beta, I don't know.

    It looks awesome, features are a little bit modified and the design is also good. But, the msn homepage is still the same. I thought that is also changed. Anyway, i have checked the video provided in the first post. It is just cool.

    Have a good day.

    I have played around with it and actually it is very fast, some of the results are obscure but all in all it is a solid improvement for Microsoft, however I do not think the current featureset is going to be enough to shift the Google users away because it just to me feels like Ask.com or one of the more "cutsey" quirky search engines.

    Is there anything they could've done which would make you feel it'd shift Google users away?

    I think if Microsoft invented an omniscient artificial intelligence that always found the page you were looking for and made it the first result, some people would still think the results were worse because they're not the same as Google's.

    Remember that AltaVista result pages didn't have some special catchy gimmick to make you go "Oh god, this is so much better than WebCrawler, I'm switching now!" Nor did Google's barebones result pages immediately say "this is way better than AltaVista, time to switch again". The details catch on and build over time.

    But the millions of people that have never changed their default homepage from MSN might actually start using the search bar on the page instead of going to Google first.

    Not much to report yet as I'm still playing around with it. I very much like the image search. It's alot cleaner than Google's image search. I'm missing the blog feature under news which I use a lot. The language settings are a lot more intuitive, too. I constantly switch between a few languages and I think it does a better job at presenting me with quick means to switch to any language. Back to testing the engine.

    Perhaps if they went in a different direction and made it a visual search engine it may have attracted Google users for being unique, I think part of the problem is they are treading over already in place technology which does not really leave much excitement or buzz for the project apart from the small tweaks they have made. This is just throwing random ideas out of my head but do you remember in encarta where it had a scrolling wheel which floated topics into focus based on categories people selected?... something like that in AJAX with a search mechanism to focus the search further may have been interesting. I just feel that while Microsoft have admittedly done some great improvements it just feels like Yahoo or Ask.com, trying to follow the Google image.

    Edit: The following website shows what I meant by being unique, this is a visual search engine which displays results in flowing pages.
