    The search capability by GOOGLE in Internet has elevate new heights and at the same time it isn't next great thing.
    I’ve been looking for a Search provider that does more for navigating results rather than just allowing you to page through X thousand results until you get bored and try other search terms.
    Since last 3 months I have been using Bing as my default search engine, where Microsoft may have hit the nail on the head with Bing.com with few features are spot on!
    Well I'm not starting a debate between Google and other search engine providers, I just wanted to note my opinion here that Bing is doing good...

    Trouble is that Google is almost a synonym for web searching. It even made it to the German dictionary, I believe.

    Oh yeah one way Google has done good on that front by letting such innovative opportunities, I guess still long way to go for Bing (especially) to share the pie in sky...

    I doubt if any search engine would overcome GOOGLE becuase it is the most popular name in the internet

    Well, that's what I mean. How many times do you find yourself saying "Just google it!" whne you meant to say "Go and search for information on the Internet!"?

    May be you are to young, but I remember to use Lycos, Altavista and/or Yahoo when google's owners can't spell Internet.[:p]
    Bing is a great tool and who knows? May in some years we said : "Just Bing it"[:)]

    To jump onto that, I remember connecting to a BBS using a 1,200 baud modem... [;)]

    Read my 1st post on the subject, I'm not starting any debat or comparisons between search engines (its a can of worms)... wanted to get your usage opinion [:)].

    Well, it's kind of implied in my answer. I couldn't get round to use Bing yet. Apart from the fact that I don't really like the name. [:)]

    Btw, just noted that if you use Firefox there is a Bing vs. Google search engine add-on: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/12661
    Will try it now and see what the comparison will look like.

    Using Madhi's link, I find that Google comes up with many more hits on some of my favourite topics.
    Plus Bing is using captcha's from time to time ...
