    I have been using Bing the last couple of days and it seems to be working pretty well for the most part. I am not sure how you extensively test out a search engine but whatever I am looking for Bing brings it up. The layout and such is pretty slick. It auto playing a portion of any video you are looking for is sweet but chances are its going to get pulled, as it is a really long reach in terms of fair use.

    Haven't tried it yet but I was watching the 'Bingathon' they had live on Hulu a few nights ago with a bunch of B-List celebrities, because it was hosted by Olivia Munn. :wub:

    ive tried a few times because it was my default engine for the rare occasions i use IE8. it does a honorable job of providing results that are relevant. i also like the fact it gives suggestions for similar sites ex. is when i search anandtech, it suggests hardocp, madshrimps and some other tech sites.

    also, if you havent tried bing cashback, you should! i bought two northface jackets for 70 bucks when it was double cashback and at retail stores they were about $65 a piece.

    After using Bing for a month or so solid, Google seems very dated. I would not be surprised to see Google follow in Microsofts footsteps in adding more features and such. Bing offers a richer experience in my opinion.
