Bing! Bing! Bing!

I love Bing! No more Google for me. One might ask (if one knew that I used Google before), why the sudden change of heart, well dear reader, it’s not so sudden. I have been flirting with Bing for some time now, the occasional search, using its homepage images for wallpapers – some of those images are fantastic. Here’s a sample of today’s image:

This here is a Pine Martin. I dint know there was a Pine Martin till I saw one on Bing today. Yes, besides having a totally awesome interface, it is also filling my reservoir of useless trivia. Compared to Bing, Google’s interface is about as interesting as a wet carrot. Having a great interface is all fine and dandy, but how is it in search; I can hear you ask – well my dear readers, it’s fantastic! Bing’s results are much more relevant than Google’s, so much more. And the preview functionality is really sweet too. Bing was already way ahead of Google in Image search. Google’s revamp of its image search to mimic Bing is proof of that – after all “mimicry is the sincerest form of flattery”. So no more Google for me, I’ll be Binging from now on.

Oh and Bing brought up my blog at the first position when I searched “Mindbrations” and Google dint. So, till Google behaves itself; bye bye Google!
