    I don't understand the hate either. Bing searches work just as great as google searches with added incentives for things like app vouchers and whatnot. I haven't used google search in a year.
    Then how would you know?

    How would I know? I just explained how google used to be my main search engine and then I switched to bing. Besides, April of 2013...really wasn't that long ago. And sometimes I check google search if I can't find something on Bing, but usually I can't find that query on google neither..

    Because, as i already said, bing only gives reliable results in USA, all the cool features are for USA, bing is only cool in USA, clear enough?

    Or just try both for yourself. You can easily access them from your web browser and they are both free. No need to look at Microsoft's marketing websites!

    I'm a bit confused. You said that you haven't used Google from April 2013, and then you say that you sometimes check Google. Please could you clarify?

    I dumped everything Google months ago. I was using Bing well before that and like it much better than Google. The rewards are a plus but I would still use Bing regardless. And yes, I live in the US.

    I have to say, I don't get the big thing about Google. I use Bing whenever possible. At work though, they block Bing, not sure why. I seriously must be a low level user, because when I use Bing, I am satisfied with my results. I have not done a side by side test, perhaps I should have done before posted, but I am happy with what Bing throws back.

    Probably because some people use it for porn video search.

    Some people need a life. Really. Who cares if someone hates on a Search Engine? Bing, Google, Firefox, Opera,blah,blah,blah... I am Canadian and I laugh at all you America Bashers. Maybe your Country could develop a Search Engine for you instead of depending on someone else to do it for you.

    Moderators, can it be considered as a personal attack on Americans ?

    WOW Some of the comments on here (Mainly those praising Bing) sound like they were written by the same people who do the Cue Cards for bad actors in Infomercials.

    Seriously...... No one actually says. "I like Bing because it gives me the information I am looking for in a format I like"
    Now I know what happened to all the old MSN Chat Room Host Bots, They became Bing Advertising Bots.

    I tried Bing cause it was new and different. I hate how it gets in to everything and keeps asking to be the default search engine like a needy child.
    I hate its toolbars & I even hate its stupid name. If you want to know why people hate Bing so much then just Google it like I did ha ha ha.
    Due to people at work hating Bing SO much and not being computer literate enough to change their search providers. Every single person has installed either Chrome or Firefox just so they don't have to see the Bing Toolbar in Internet Explorer anymore. Its been a real issue for our I.T. department lately when they tried to launch the company Intranet & found that no one even saw it because the server was only changing the default home page in I.E.
    So the only thing I really DO LOVE about Bing is that it has made Google Chrome & Firefox the Preferred Web Browser of slightly technologically disadvantaged people everywhere. I bet if MS did a survey to find out how many people NEVER opened Internet Explorer since Day 1 & only to install Google Chrome, they would suddenly make Google the default search provider & home page very swiftly.

    If I NEVER heard another person say the word BING ever again I would be happy. The Stupidly named search engine has even made me dislike on of my previously favorite Friends Characters. Sorry Chandler..

    I so want to like Bing, I love the design of it, I love the different image everyday. But I'm not in the US and I frequently have to resort to Google. With Google I find the thing I'm looking for is usually in the first few results, Bing is often way off.
    And obviously we don't get the rewards etc.
    I also don't like the name, would be better as something like OneSearch. But that's a minor detail.

    From India... I use Bing exclusively for video and image searches as I prefer Bing's layout... Regular searches work well on some queries but then when I'm not satisfied with the result I use Google... I found Google results to be better for local data but else Bing was better.. In fact the results in India have improved during the last few months and they have brought the university ranking information and few others over here too

    I'm just sick and tired of Google's entitlement kick.

    Google is so great it gets to invade every bit of your data and mine the carp out of it? I'm not here on this earth to feed Google's money chest by being a cog in its advertising mill. Enough. Google is neither a privilege or a right. And it's not just a search engine; it's an invasive species trying to replicate your life and sell it as an advertising model on the open market. Google makes me cringe any more. Find one way to knock out their relentless ads and they find another venue to shove them back into your face.

    The fact that if I don't have the right popup blocker running means that Google Ads will appear in my Gmail inbox makes me rant and rave.

    When you see the top 3 search results are ads and there are 5 more on the right column it makes me want to retch.

    If you click on an article so you can read and become informed and there is a giant advertisement blocking the text and you close it, then Google wants feedback on why you don't want to see it and the TRUE ANSWER is not available makes me pull my hair out in frustration. Guess what Google? I didn't dismiss your ad because it isn't relevant. I did not close the flipping advert box because you didn't try hard enough to find an ad tailored just to me and really what I want is for you to start sniffing up my bum harder so you can detect what brand of cheeseburger I did eat last night. I closed it simply for the fact that is an ad. I closed it because you shoved it in my face unwanted, unasked for and without any warning. Now I'm not only not reading that ad, I'm doing my best to remember never to visit your sycophantic monetized partner site ever again with their click bait make money for nothing bull snot.

    It's insidious and getting worse over time. I used to love Google. I never hated any other search engine.

    Now I actively hate Google and am trying my best to root it out and be as Google Free as I can possibly make my life. Yes... all search is based on the same premise... Find out what drives consumers. True enough. Google is just so doggone brazen about rubbing my face in it and now when I see anything Google I just imagine someone laughing maniacally as they attempt to subvert the whole world to their advertising addled philosophy.

    I'm out.

    I have to use Google because it's international search engine.
    Provide good search result for both local & international.

    Bing is made for USA only.
    It is good for international but for local ..........not so much.
    Some fans will suggest you to change your region to USA for better result in bing. But why we do that.
    You can get same or better result from google without any change.

    I think bing is hated because for USA it is top notch search engine but for rest of the world it's like 3 class search engine.

    It's like bing is telling that you are inferior because you are not from USA.


    So, I do not use bing.(except for porn search- provide the best search result)

    Actually to test that I change my 4 friends search engine from Google to bing.
    Guess what none of them was happy from that.

    It's actually quality not popularity.

    I don't like Bing for a simple reason, it doesn't give me the search results I need.

    I too resent Google's invasiveness. It was one of the reasons I got a windows phone.

    However, the default search engine for Cortana on my windows 8.1 phone is Bing, and Bing just doesn't work well. I'm posting this because, just yesterday, I tried to get some simple information on my way to town to do some errands. For example, I wanted the website for a bank so I could check the hours the bank was open. I give the name of the bank and the city and Bing supplies me with a page full of websites that report on banks -- but not the bank's own website. I give the same information to Google and it gives me the banks website and I get the information I need.

    This kind of thing happens to me a lot. So, no matter how much I would rather not use Google, it is my preferred search engine. Why? Because it works. It gives me the information I'm looking for, usually on the first try. I can't say that for Bing.

    I'm told that Microsoft monitors these kinds of topics, because they have a business interest in Bing becoming more popular. So -- Microsoft, if you are listening -- and you want more people to use Bing -- you are going to have to improve it. It's that simple.

    In the meantime, I'm probably going to dump my windows phone when my contract is up. That's how much I am annoyed with Bing. I need something better.
