A new search engine Bing

Microsoft too have fully jumped in search engine business with the launch of Bing. Still its beta as it logo contains Beta. But we can use all it features to use the this page and set English - United States as your default region. This will bring the new look rather full featured bing.

For instance the image of mountain and man which seems to be static in beta is interactive in full featured.

With Bing, you can save your search history on to a local folder inside Bing or to your Windows Skydrive account. Alternatively, you may send your search queries to a friend via email or publish them on your Facebook wall via Bing. You’ll need Silverlight to share queries in Bing.

Bing offers RSS feeds for their web search results that you can subscribe to inside any feed reader. Your browser should be able to auto-detect the RSS feed of Bing pages or you can append &format=rss to any Bing search URL and convert it into a feed.

Bing (and Live Search) supports a unique "contains" search operator that lets you find web pages that contain links to particular file types. For eg. To search document file or any other
type say statistical information contains:d0c. This will show all the pages with statistical information that have link to doc file.

Its said that it is decision engine!. It will help in finding thing on the basis of the previous searches. Adding of farecast feature that will tell whether the price will rise or fall. Ability to hover over a search result to see more information, without having to open a new link.

Try all this open Bing. Search anything you like. This will show the search results. Hover on the result a horizontal line with orange ball will appear on right side. Take mouse on that orange ball. It will load the data about the link with many option at the bottom of it.
