I'm very impressed it, although one annoying feature seems if you do some single word searches it will display the top 5, then offer 2 word searches - so if you search for widgets it will show top 5 then offer top three for blue widgets, red widgets & Green widgets

so if you were 6th for a single word term you've lost out as even if you click the more button that returns you to Bing worldwide, then if you click UK only it returns you back the top 5 again and you just keep going around in circles

The results AFAIC see are pretty good but this is based on opinion rather than testing. Some of my sites do well others not so well but the actual results look quite acceptable to me.

Interestingly, it now redirects from the .co.uk to [bing.com...]
