    I hear you. I live in the US and I honestly prefer Bing over Google and use Bing exclusively but Microsoft really needs to work on making their products and services function the same globally.

    Global functionality is easier to demand than provide, especially when the markets demanding it don't have sufficient volumes of sales to make it worthwhile.

    Google has been around since the mid 1990s, and its services grew across the globe due to cheap Android. Microsoft's not going to be able to catalogue Albania or Bhutan to the degree that Google is, since Google's business model is so different -- and the costs that consumers pay for doing business with Google are often not entirely obvious to them.

    It's a catch 22.

    So maybe Google has a point when they say that there aren't enough WP users to make it worth their while?

    Thanks for clearing that up.

    Sure. I don't use Google's spyware. But when Google invests resources to ensure that they break competitors' access to their services, that tells me that their motive isn't indifference.

    Google is evil 😈...my opinion.
    Want to know what Google says about that?

    Google seems to be unstoppable right now like Microsoft was when Bill Gates ran it! 😎

    Luckily for me, Bing is pretty awesome in the UK.

    I've been going strong for two weeks now. No problem! I'm really impressed with Bing so far.
