Posted By Sujith Kosaraju on June 1st, 2009

Bing.com the all new search engine from Microsoft went live quietly today with out much hype. Already reviews from majority of the Tech sites have rated the search engine much user friendlier and as the Google killer. Lot of positive responses can be seen around on blogs and discussion about Microsoft Bing.

Few new features of Bing to try:

  • An ambiguous Web search: “turkey” (do you want images, recipes, facts, or a map of the country? The topic guides in the left explore pane will help you narrow your search).
  • All travel related searches: Bing Travel. Don’t have to visit a travel website, check the query for “chennai to hyderabad”.
  • Video search: “Tendulkar”  (Cool part is the video plays there itself, just hover over the thumbnail to play the video)
  • Image search: “Tiger” (infinite scroll displays all the images) with options to choose like Size, Layout, Colour,Style and People.
  • A health search: “Sore throat”
  • Shopping: “Digital SLR” (sort by price or brand, get average ratings and CashBack).
  • Maps: “BBQ” (automatically knows what city you are in and offers up geo-appropriate results).
