Search Engine Wars

Microsoft has launched its new search engine
Bing (formerly dubbed Kumo) today (China site, Hong Kong site). I tried a few queries though found no fundamental differences from other major search engines. But advances in the searching techniques probably are not something identifiable within a few trials. I decide to use Bing and Google interchangeably for a few days or weeks and see what Microsoft has actually accomplished in the past few months.

No matter how much Microsoft can achieve this time and how long Bing will go, the market is at war again. The development of search engines is yet far from ceasing.
