I'll stick with Google simply because of the Search Tools. It helps me a lot in limiting and narrowing down my search results.

Agreed. I just don't think Microsoft has responded quick enough to ever shift people away from using Google, for many computer users, young and old, Google is the defacto search engine, no matter what.

I like Bing for some things, especially images, but I prefer Google overall.

I use Bing for everything. It's very rare that I don't find what I need within the first page. Though I would like to see them move the web/images/etc links back to the left side panel or at least customize what is shown. Also, get rid of the some the white and put some useful info there instead A 15in widescreen that most people have gives more than enough space to move prominent things like related images and news onto a sidebar rather than in the search results itself.

Bing doesn't even have feature parity with Google, let alone a compelling reason to switch. It's funny how Microsoft thinks it can convince people to use its sub-par products based on propaganda and scam contests. If they spent half as much time improving the products as they do deceiving people, they might have something competitive.

Said like someone that's never touched Bing before :)

Whatever, bro.

Wrong, use both. Google for everyday stuff, BING for free Microsoft points for xbox. Though I had to be enticed into using BING for free MS points I still find their search results to work well. Could do without the Facebook / social sidebar.

With bing you can't even narrow down search results like you can with google's search tools (i.e. show only results from past year/month etc...) this can often come in handy.

That is the one and only feature I miss (when I need it, which is rarely). And it's absence baffles me as it appears for some results and not others. However, for 99% of my queries (especially computer related) Bing gets me better results. If I need results from a time period, I include version numbers.

Um Microsoft doesn't control what ads developers put in their apps.

Is that why Google has been using Bing as an influence on their most recent design changes and feature add-ons?

yes, well, guess where google got that idea and tons of others from? Bing.

Both engines borrow form each other and that's good.

Google also doesn't have feature parity with bing. I know I am feeding a troll here but bing results are as good as Google for all my search queries. I only go to Google now a days if I need more search results volume (which is increasingly rare these days).

I think ppl are so used with Google. They were the first search engine to release a minimalist window. Bing is not that bad IMHO but like other folks, I just use Google as well
