Honestly no matter how big a corporate scum Google is, their search engine is miles ahead of Bing and others.

I hope you know bing uses google to search things and all your getting is a different layout / people who pay to be on top.

I duno how they do it but even using google algorithms nothing comes up that I want ever . I leave google as my homepage since 2002

To each their own  :)

 

Whatever works and you're happy with.  Bing is pretty.  Their pics of the day are usually pretty darn cool.  I don't personally use Bing, but certainly wouldn't deride anyone who did.

First I have done enough testing on both to believe I do not see enough difference to matter. No matter the search either engine gets me to my target, not a single search has one really beat the other with better results. Then however I add in the Bing rewards and get happy. I mean sure it is a gimmick but that gimmick has gotten me free books, free Starbucks and if I was a heavy Skype user or Xbox users free stuff there as well. I mean the Amazon rewards can be used for ANYTHING Amazon sells and the really cool part is they do not expire.

 

At the end of the day with both search engines doing the job equally well for me it seems a no brainer to get free stuff for the searches I do daily anyway...

Yeah both search enginges get me to where i need to go no doubt. I dont really use search that much anyway and bing is a lot more user fresindly, IMO. so why not?
