comScore’s latest findings show that Google has yet to reach its saturation point of users, as it inched up by 0.2 percent from January to February. Microsoft’s Bing also climbed slightly by 0.1 percent.
But the two rival search engines are still a world apart from each other as Google reigns with over 66 percent of the market share, while Bing is scraping in at second place with just over 15 percent.

Why would anyone want to use Bing. It's a disaster.
We changed our business model in March 2009. We changed all the copy, title, description, keywords, etc. and yet in March, 2012 Bing is still showing the old information. Google had the changes up & running is days.
Reminds me of AltaVista in 2000.
The ads they are showing are totally irrelevant to the query.
Like I said a disaster. I find it hard to believe they have 15%. Certainly not from my site statistics.

In my niche, bing seems to give more power to the well established big sites. This makes their results irrelevant at times. Google seems to have gone this direction as well, but no to the extent which Bing gone. My site and my close competitors' sites are very focused on their subjects, yet the big guys rank for related queries on bing.
