Bing is the latest version of a search engine developed by Microsoft. Microsoft was developing and testing for the last couple of months a search engine with the name Kumo which in Japanese means spider or cloud. Kumo was of course just the code name for what would become eventually Bing.
Search is very important because 1% of the search market is roughly worth 1 billion dollars. This means that the number two player can make some decent money. Microsoft doesn't have to become number one but they need to just grab around 30% or so and they are in good shape. Since Bing was launched...

So I got it installed at home on a windows XP machine. It installed really quickly but you have to close Firefox so it can import all the settings from that. I’m not even sure it asked me if it could do that. I’m actually writing this blogpost in chrome.
So it loads the pages really fast and it renders the pages mainly in one go. I think it loads those pieces from the same server in one go.
Most things work. Except for the checkbox. Somebody made a mistake and it renders the checkbox as a radiobutton but I’m sure they will get that fixed one day.
First, I would like to ask myself why do we need another browser? Well, because competition is a good thing. But is it really competition and from who will it steal the market share? I’m pretty sure it will steal from Firefox and the other lesser used browsers, because those are the people that actually take the effort to install something different than Internet Explorer. The IE users either don’t have a choice or they just aren’t computer savvy enough to know there are other things out there (like aliens).
