Bing Is Alive! [UPDATED] seems to be accepting search queries as I type this. So I’ve played with it for a bit and I have a few first impressions:

  • It has a video preview feature that allows you to move your mouse cursor over a video that you might be interested, and Bing will play it for you. Just be careful about previewing NSFW stuff at work though.
  • Along the left side you can see categories, a search history and related searches. A very handy feature. Although Google will do the same thing if you click “Show Options…” But it does allow you to drill down to what you’re looking for easily.
  • Shockingly, Bing’s features worked with Firefox.
  • Being Canadian, I tried some Canadian queries. It was 50/50 at best.

I’ll play with it some more today, but there’s really nothing here that will tear me away from Google. At least not yet. Perhaps some more time with it will change my mind.

UPDATE: The Telegraph has a story about how Bing can be used to access porn. This might be how Bing will become popular! Not only that, someone has registered the domain name which redirects to
