Google is the household name with regards to searching the Web. However, it might not be the best search engine out there. Microsoft unveiled Bing, a competitor, in 2009 and it shouldn’t be dismissed. Although many Internet users still use Google as their primary search engine, Bing has numerous features that make for a robust searching experience.
Taking Another Look at Bing
When searching on Bing, you get more information about your search results then you do with Google. Bing has a navigation panel on the left that allows users to focus their search effortlessly. Additionally, it organizes search results into logical categories, making it easier to get quick answers.
Bing Goes Beyond Search Results
When you search in Bing, you get more then just search results. Bing pulls up images, and videos that are associated with your search. While Google has this function, Bing makes the navigation somewhat more user friendly. Another helpful feature is what they call Farecast Technology. This is part of the Bing Travel site and it allows users to find the cheapest airfare easily.
Bing Video Search Shines
Bing shines, too, when it comes to searching for videos. Before searching, users can tell Bing how long they would like their videos to be, what screen size they’d like them to be, and what resolution they’d prefer. Users can start their videos by simply hovering their cursors over a screen capture.
These are some of the reasons why computer users should not be so quick to disregard Bing. Yes, Google remains the go-to player when it comes to search engines. But that doesn’t mean that it’s the only choice today.
