Bing .vs Google

By now I'm sure you've heard of Bing!, Microsoft's newest attempt at search, they seem to be full force behind the advertising. Although I must admit there are some interesting ideas behind Bing, I still think Google is going to be tough to beat. Gone are the days when Microsoft only had to bundle something with their OS and overnight it was a market leader. Which be they way Bing! is the default search provider in IE 8.

I've played around with Bing! a little bit over the last week or so and I think there is some potential. Is it better than Google, I don't think so. Then again, who am I to decide. Check out http://www.furia.com/code/bg/bg.cgi. This nifty app will display your search results from both Google and Bing side by side. I encourage you take a test drive.
