Microsoft's Try at Google
TRAVEL: Unlike Google, Bing has an amazing travel feature, allowing you to find the cheapest and best deal on flights. Now, traveling is much more easier with Bing's feature. Plus, they have the Bing's seven-day tip. It basically predicts if within the next few days if the prices will rise or get even lower. This also tells you if you should buy now, or wait a little later. Do you have a favorite airline? You can wait look at the airline checker to see the cheapest flight prices for that airline, it is pretty handy.
VISUAL SEARCH- Another thing that is very different from Google is the visual search section. No, it is not like Google Images, though, Bing does have an image search. Visual Search gives you man different caategories, with pictures. After clicking on a picture, it takes you to a list of many sites that have to do with that category. They're main reason for doing this is to "give people more search ideas". For me, I don't just search for fun, I do it when I need information. I dont need "search ideas", I search when I need info on something.
Anyways, Bing is basically Microsoft's try at Google. Though Bing has a few extra features, the format is exactly like Google's. I think that Bing doesn't have a shot at what Google has done, but it is a great search engine and it is very well done.
That was this week's bio,
