Being a die-hard google fan, this review might be a bit biased. But you have to admit...bing is nothing but a google knockoff.
Google, the leader in the search engine industry, topples the competition with over 80% of all searches being directed to Google. Most other search engines struggle to copy and keep up with the innovations Google pushes forward. Bing is the latest: this sucessor to Microsoft's Live search copies the layout and search tools of google.
The front page is what brings most people to bing, but for me it just serves as a distraction. The only unique and refreshing part of bing is the image search. It allows for many images on a single page, rather than splitting them up into several pages. This framed approach makes image searching much more intuitive and is commendable. While Google has admittedly copied this by now, it still stands as a testament to the potential creativity and power of bing.
Overall, I'm not impressed by bing, but the intuitive image search and potential secures it a 2-star rating. What do you think? Let me know in the comments!
