I am thinking of changing over to Bing as my default search engine.

I am finding Google looking a bit dated and the search results that it gives me are not always that relevant.

Google seems to have a bias towards selling sites, and it often throws up forum post from years back.

I use search quite a bit for research.

I am not asking about Bing as an advertising money making site.

So here's a novel idea..

Try searching on Bing for yourself for research and decide for your self. Not everybody searches for the same stuff so it's different for everybody.

Agreed everyone is different. For me, at the moment, Google wins hands down every time.

But I came across a person the other day who did a search using Ask. I asked why use Ask, the reply was they had always used Ask. Amazing but there you go, different engines suite different people. So use the one that suits you rather than me or any one else here.
