Bing it On!

Bing it on
Bing it On!
No typo there, Bing is challenging Google to a search-off with a side-by-side comparison of their search results. It's a blind test because the results for each search engine display randomly on the right and left and you have to choose which you find most relevant. I tried it and found I'm a Googler at heart. Of course, which results you pick is sometimes just personal preference, but I somehow picked Google's results over Bing's most often.  A couple of times my choice was a draw, but when I picked the winner, it was always Google. A CNET writer found the results interesting when he took the test, but a Betanews writer found it a turn-off. So, what does this mean? I guess maybe Bing still has some work to do, but I still visit the page every day to see the daily images, which are dear to my heart. For a great archive of Bing images, I recommend istartedsomething's website. Take a look at my results below (click the image to see my search queries).
