    I'm on the Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1 Dev Preview, and I appear to have gained the ability to choose between either Bing or Google using the browser search bar.

    Try looking in settings>(applications)>Internet Explorer>advanced settings.

    You may or may not find it there.

    I'm on same version but no such option for me I'm afraid.

    I think it has something to do with Corona... do you have it enabled...I do

    I have Cortana enabled. I'm on Lumia Cyan, by the way, on a Philippine 630./

    Hmm on my Lumia 920 I am still able to choose between Bing or Google. I'm in the USA if it matters.

    With that being said, I honestly can't say Google is better than Bing, it's a wash really. You'll find whatever you're looking for.
