Microsoft Announces Bing Search Engine

kumo-screen-annotatedMicrosoft will release its new Bing search engine worldwide on June 3rd in an attempt to recapture some of the market share lost to Google. Bing offers a dynamic searching experience with each query having a customized refining of possible matches using an algorithm to offer several categories of search results. Your search results will be organized into different subcategories collectively called Guided Search depending on relevency to your original search terms. One of the things I dislike about the current search engines available is the sheer volume of irrelevent clutter interspersed within the results. Hopefully, Bing's technology will offer a new solution to this problem, which will increase productivity and decrease time spent clicking on links that are otherwise useless to the original search query. TechCrunch has a write-up on first impressions using a pre-release version of Bing.
