My thoughts on Google...I shy away from anything that tries to piggy back it's way onto your pc, and google is about to become worse than AOL as far as that goes. I can't count the number of installers that include a "install google toolbar" option hidden from view nor how many times at work the google toolbar has fubared one of our web-based apps with their automatic pop-up blocker. I have the google website memorized (ha ha) and have live/bing as my default homepage. I'm starting to see signs that Microsoft is waking up and smelling the coffee, so I will not drop them yet.

So who uses Bing over say Google?

I have set it as my standard search provider for the browser, but I still finding myself typing in goo (down arrow) (enter) and going to google a lot. I use both pretty often at this point.

Its become a habit to use Google, so I find it hard to use Bing.

I use it all the time, I think Microsoft has done a great job with it. In fact I may (on some days) use Bing more than I do Google

I like Bing. It might not be as feature rich as Google (yet), but the fact that it loads faster than the Google web-page makes it worthwhile in certain situations.

Really? How did you find that out?

It would make a difference, though, to slower internet connections. :^:
