But It’s Not Google!

Yes, that’s what Bing is! It is not Google (well, not as yet) but the names behind this search engine could make it a force to reckon with. Following a failed bid by Microsoft to acquire Yahoo last year, the two powerhouses have now decided to join hands to take on the might of the cyberworld’s most dominant force. This arrangement will see the Yahoo’s search engine getting an added boost by Microsoft’s Bing which comes with lot of interesting features including some stunning background images, an option to preview the pages including any URLs in that page that can be directly clicked, a left side navigation pane for related searches and prior searches and many more. Here is a great tool to spilt-test Bing Vs. Google (this is really awesome!)

Now that the partnership between Yahoo and Microsoft is formal, the web community is waiting with bated breath to see what impact it has on Google’s dominance. After all, who does not want to imagine a more level playing field within the web world?

Next time, if you are thinking of Googling something, remember you can also Bing it!

Cheers,
