Bing search is now showing a little feedback button in the search results and is asking everyone to rate the search results.
Competition is always good, we don’t want any single product (Google) to dominate the web. Bing is the first search engine that is actually at par with Google.
and that pretty picture doesn’t slow you down whereas Google has to keep the interface minimal for speed.
Now instead of mocking at Microsoft, Google is listening to the buzz and is trying to improve there search engine. There’s also news that Google is first time advertising it’s search capabilities – ‘Hey! We can do that also’
Sergey Brin – I think it will soon be possible to have a search engine that “understands” more of the queries and documents than we do today. Others claim to have accomplished this, and Google’s systems have more smarts behind the curtains than may be apparent from the outside, but the field as a whole is still shy of where I would have expected it to be.
So, which is more useful – The decision engine (Bing) or the understanding engine( Google) ?
