Bing homepage gets a revamp

Back in May we reported that the Bing search interface had been "redefinied" with new features and an all-new look that pulls ideas from Microsoft's Metro design language. Now, this set of updates has been complemented with a new Bing homepage that features a larger daily image and an improved pane of tile-esque highlights at the bottom.

Not much else needs to be said, so you should really head over to the Bing homepage to check out the updates for yourselves. Note that the homepage appears to only be live on the United States Bing for now, so if you want to check out the new look you might have to switch your locale.

I like the changes. Bing is a really good search engine. I just wish the results were better for tech / dev searches. For whatever reason I find I get better results for stuff like that on Google. It's the only thing I don't use Bing for actually.

I like how it looks! I saw a preview of it yesterday on Defrag (Channel 9 show) but I didn't think it was a new version I actually thought it was just Bing on a small screen (Gov's netbook).

One thing I wonder about though is videos and how it'll look. The past two videos are now just stills.

Fantastic! I've started recommending Bing to people in my circles. Google's attack on web spam has certainly messed up results. I feel like de-ja-vu where I used to search Yahoo then hit Google for better results way back in the day, now I'm finding myself hitting Bing when Google's results aren't what I'm looking for. Good job Bing, you are heading in the right direction!

As usual with Bing its US only, getting a bit sick of this TBH! Its a layout change, why the hell limit it to US only ffs!

I agree. looks beautiful but the html5 video images have been disabled. I hope they fix this.

Do you read books from the end too, or what? Why reply to the quoted text before the quote?

I don't know. I just clicked reply and started typing, just like I'm doing now. I never really have to click elsewhere before I type on any other website.

testing intriguing, when you just start typing it's in front of the quote O.O never noticed that

Thanks to the people at MS always wanted something like this, now lets bring it to the rest of the world. Please.... (in my case Canada)

Microsoft loves to spoil the USA and give the rest of us the shaft. Smart plan when the USA only makes up 5% of the worlds population.

It takes a while for the data to travel to your country. Be patient.

Yes because it travels by ship. takes a few days to travel though.

It looks nice, but it isn't Metro enough, compared to their apps for Windows 8.

they got people of all OSes that use thier site... gotta keep it neutral.... metro sites look silly on mac and mac osx themed looking sites look silly on metro.... this is a downside of each OS having very different looks...

it looks much better thank you! except the only flaw is that only "images, videos, maps, and news" are shown, and it is a bit tedious accessing the other sections
