Microsoft Launches Bing Search Engine to Compete With Google

Microsoft to Launch New Search Engine "Bing" on June 3

Ready to rev up a new search engine? Microsoft is gearing up to launch its newest search engine effort, the succinctly named (and Web 2.0-ish sounding) Bing, set for June 3, to compete in a market that Google currently rules.


Bing isn't totally new — Microsoft is essentially ditching and updating Live Search to bring you what they're hoping is a better search experience, promising things like "Instant Answers" and offering a simpler but more colorful interface. Hey, it worked for Google.

P.S. This isn't the first time Microsoft has tried something risky to get people to switch to their search; last year they offered to pay you for using their search engine.

In the meantime, you can check out Bing's teaser page and contemplate the question I know is on everyone's mind: what does Chandler think of this?
