Bing fighting Google fatigue


Over the years, I’ve come to use Google for SOOOOOOO much. Over the past week, I changed my default search engine in Internet Explorer and Firefox over to Bing. From what I think I’m seeing, Bing slightly exceeds Google in effectiveness. It might be that the UI is a little fresher, the results have slightly better relevance, or just that it is something new. Regardless, after several days of really heavy use, I don’t think I’m returning to Google search anytime soon.

FWIW, I tend to type in sentence based queries as opposed to sophisticated boolean logic. Bing likes my questions better than Google does, and that let’s me get my job done faster.

From what I’m seeing, Bing is a little bit better. A little bit is enough for me to switch.
