    I use Bing because I can't trust Google to give me the best search results...

    When I search for products on Google, it's all paid advertising. It's been that way in the US since 2012:

    Google Product Search To Become Google Shopping, Use Pay-To-Play Model

    And it's been that way in 11 more countries since 2013:

    Google Switches To Paid Shopping Results In 11 New Countries

    I know that you don't like being confused with facts, but it's time to stop drinking the Google kool-aid.
    Obviously I agree with you. & there's no need to clarify why you use it, many of us use Bing. You already know the reasons.

    Once again, thanks for the links.

    omg dude
    did you know bing is actually excellent to use even in India etc
    stop generalising
    Not 100% sure on that. Bing image search still leaves much to be desired imo. Both fall short on excellence on a few things, but I've chosen bing since it happens to be good enough 95% of the time.

    "Everyone knows Skype sucks on both platforms anyway"
    Same goes to Android buddy, sucks big time. Everybody knows Android sucks anyway.
    99% of people using Skype disagree with you.
    I've used the Skype app on Windows Phone and the one on Android and I'll honestly say this.

    The WP version is better designed but painfully slow and slower to update and get the latest features, it often did crash as well at times.

    The Android doesn't "look" like it's as polished but it's way faster and often gets updated faster as well.

    Just my opinion.

    What did you desire in your search results?

    Nearly anything I searched for on Bing, Google did better for images. Especially when it comes to more anime/manga related searches. But it goes beyond that. I feel Google is more solid on their search algorithms, or whatever drives it.

    Back about YouTube: I usually watch videos in IE with the mobile version and I'm fine with it; but when it comes to watch embedded videos in other full web sites is a pain, because IE crashes when I tap the play button 3 times out of 4.
    Any solution to this?

    While MetroTube, myTube and those tons of other clients aren't bad I haven't found any client as good as the official Material Design YouTube app:

    I hope Google ports this to Windows Phone one day.

    For me, what makes YouTube great is the comments. And to get the best of the commenting system, I need the official app.

    Google+ integration is also extremely useful for YouTube comments, it gives you notifications when someone replies and stuff.
