Now if you search any keyword in bing, it will show only 5 organic search results.

Are they testing something or its bug in bing.com?

I'm @ India using Mozilla. Seems some browser based fluctuations.

This isn't new. They've been doing this for months now. I've seen 12, 11, 10, 5, 4, and anything in between. However, lately I've only been seeing 10. So I'm pretty sure it's testing, maybe even regional.

>keep it simple

There's nothing logical about them having 10 results, I doubt the average user 'expects' 10 results on a page.
