When searching for something on the Internet, the majority of people automatically go to Google. We even use it as a verb when we “Google” something. However, a lesser-used yet robust search engine is Microsoft’s Bing. While Bing may be often overlooked, it actually has a lot to offer surfers of the Web.
Taking Another Look at Bing
When searching on Bing, you get more information about your search results then you do with Google. Bing includes a navigation panel on the left that allows users to focus their search easily. In addition, it organizes search results into logical categories, making it simpler to get quick answers.
Bing Goes Beyond Search Results
Another great thing about Bing is that it doesn’t just bring up search results. It also brings up relevant videos, music, and images. Although this is a feature of Google as well, Bing makes it more user friendly, as the categories are right beneath the search bar. Bing beats Google for travel searches too. They use something called Farecast Technology in the Bing Travel site; it lets users find the cheapest flights quickly and 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 simply by hovering their cursors over a screen capture.
These are some reasons why computer users should not ignore Bing. While Google is a household name, it’s not the only search engine available.
