Why I'm Dropping Bing For Google

   It's been about a month since I started a Bing experiment, and it's gone pretty well. Search results are about as good as Google (NSDQ: GOOG), sometimes better. After a month, though, I've decided to go back to Google. The problem isn't with the search results quality; it's all the other things that Bing doesn't do -- and some things it does that I wish it wouldn't.

I do at least a dozen searches a day. The Google page is no-nonsense and boring, with nothing there to distract you from your goal of entering the search terms and getting on with your work. Bing, on the other hand, opens with a breathtaking page of full-color distraction. Okay, I'm going to search for ... wow, Morocco, how exotic! I'd rather be there than sitting at my desk, but it's 11 in the morning and I really need to get some work done ... what was I searching for again?     [ Information Week...]    [Comments...]
