I think the Bing homepage is extremely "sticky" When ever I land on the bing homepage I have a look at the image currently being displayed and have a bit of a poke around with the mouseover tips and links.
I think in this case an attractive image with related information that changes daily is an incredibly clever thing to do. it is interesting to note that all the images are from Corbis which is owened by Bill Gates.

I'm using Bing a lot more than Google these days, but I think the homepage design is a great marketing took. Its not just design, there is reason for it. I think of it as more of a marketing tool than a homepage design.

My main reason for starting this thread was to see if anyone would say what I was thinking. The homepage in almost habbit forming. Many googlers use Google through habit. It's the habbit googlers that Bing needs to go after.
