For the love of god - Narrow by Date
Why oh why can't this be added as lots of people woudl statr using Bing...

Ok unless I am missing something - the "narrow by date" function still doesn't exist in Bing...

This has to be a 'relatively' simple fix, but do they see fit to deem themselves more clever than me in knowing exactly when I could possibly need to filter out the latest results

I can't even get it to appear in the UK for any search term! Any one else having any luck?

To prove a point on how lacking Bing UK is on this I tried :

"narrow by date"

and the first result :

Bing Webmaster Community - 2009 [bing.com]

1002 days ago.... with users asking the same thing. WHat good is that...?!

I am not logged in, and have not changed any settings but if I enter :

latest holidays deals in spain
ski deals
racing bikes

I would expect to see a narrow by date so I can at least go to things in the past 24 hours...

Not good enough to win users over...

Please please please Bing do something that will get users searching with you!

You are preaching to the converted!

Bing still offers the +must include operator while google removed it. Google offers narrow by date. Both of these are deal breakers for me.

I use Bing as my default search engine but so often lately I am forced to revert to google because I need recent results. For the life of me I cannot understand why they don't include this.

I meant add that it is all part of the search engines' policy to tell you what they think you were looking for rather than letting you find it yourself.
