    So... I ask you WPC members... Bing search vs. Google search...

    Which do you use on a daily basis, and WHY?

    Currently Bing because I want to see how I'll like it after a period of time.

    Binge gives me better results for some reason, feels like I find stuff faster for some strange reason, also using IE.

    Bing. Not only cos I'm a MS fanboy, but I've found it gives me a bit better results. My fiancee, who definitely isn't an MS fanboy (or girl :D) also agrees that she finds better results using Bing here in Finland.

    That said, I would probably put up with slightly worse results too.

    Bing, mainly for the Rewards. It pays for my Starbucks card top-offs.

    If I'm not mistaken, Bing Rewards is US-only.

    Have you ever compared the quality of the results for the same queries?

    PC - google

    Android - google.. Looks really nice especially with google now. Results for weather, people, equations, conversion, etc are wonderful

    Wp8 - Bing. Same reason as I prefer google on android. It looks better and better optimized.

    I gave bing a chance earlier this year and compare the two sporadically. I prefer the results and layout on bing. Plus bing rewards is a HUGE incentive

    You bring about a good point... not only are the quality of the results important, but the integration and optimization for a particular OS and/or device is huge as well.

    No. Not on any mobile OS.

    It only works on a desktop PC browser.

    it works on WP if you set default site version to desktop and open IE from the start menu, BUT it still won't work from the search button at the bottom right.

    Bing, simply for the rewards. Well, not just that...I hate Google in general. However, the only strong benefit, in terms of usability, if the Rewards program.

    Google. I've taken that comparison and it confirmed Google.

    I like and use them equally, Bing of course more often on the phone. I'm very thankful for Google's great services... no complaints here. Microsoft and Google need to cooperate better.

    Bing. Cause I always felt that Bing always gave me the best results while Google gave me random ones first

    Just about the only thing I think Google does better is searching even if theres a typo in the keywords that you search for.

    I was just searching for this restoration shaman guide from Icy Veins (WoW stuff) and I accidently Binged for "resto shaman icy veinc" and got 0 results. When I fixed the typo so it was "icy veins", I found all the usual stuff and exactly what I looked for. I've had Bing show me results with the kind of "Did you mean..?"-kinda thing, but this is quite typical to bing that even one letter typoed gives me zero results whatsoever, while Google is still able to find the thing I look for.

    It's not that big of a deal when I know how to write the thing correctly, but sometimes you are not sure how something it spelled and you might be without results..
