Google has competition

Google has long ruled supreme in the world of internet search and has become so much a part of our daily lives has that we no longer ‘search’ for things, we ‘Google’ for them. However there is a new kid block. In June this year, Microsoft released their new search engine known as Bing. It is a different interface in terms of presentation: where Google is the straight-forward predominantly white and plain window, Bing (www.bing.com) provides a different picture daily, cycling through beautifully photographed and extremely vivid shots of natural scenes. In addition to the eye-catching colours, you can also mouse over points in picture to get facts based on the photo itself. But it isnt about who looks prettier, it is about who provides the better search result. There are many articles on comparison and if you would like to read about some of the differences from a more technical point of view try doing an Internet search for Google versus Bing, or try this article as a startpoint.
My personal choice is to stay with Google, as I feel Microsoft has enough of a monopoly on what we all do online.
