Bing.com ... new search engine to compete with google

Bing (formerly Live Search, Windows Live Search and
MSN Search), codenamed Kumo is the name of Microsoft's new web search engine, designed to compete with
the industry leaders Google and Yahoo!. Unveiled by Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer on May 28, 2009 at the All Things D conference in
San Diego, Bing is a replacement for Live Search, and it went fully online on
June 1, 2009.[1]

Notable changes include the addition of related searches (called "Explorer
pane" on the left side of search results), based on semantic technology from PowerSet[2], a search company
Microsoft purchased in 2008, search
suggestions as you type, and the ability to keep track of your search

  1. Bing seems to be quite successful, since it already has 20 million unique users per days, as per bing.com revenue.
