I thought UK (at least) was already switched!

Ah, well. Maybe yahoo will slow down on their over-active bots now? Probably not. :(

This is good news for Bing if the Yahoo users also switch to Bing but how many will switch to Google?

Great News

Just looking at my stats, Bing & Yahoo appear to be same. Perhaps we have the beginings of results now that will begin to compete with G.

yahoo users seem very loyal to yahoo, even if the search algo changes I don't think they'll flee to goog.

How many average users will even notice or care?
