Designing a search engine is a humongous task. What’s equally or even more humongous is the opportunity in reinventing an online experience we have taken for granted for so long. Bing’s current strategy seems to be simply following behind Google, copying them every move. It’s a perfect recipe for irrelevance.
You can say that again. For kicks, I gave Bing another try lately to see how they have come along. It’s better than it was a year ago, but it feels like it is stuck in the summer of 2011; it already seems dated in the recent redesign. I think I’ll stick with DuckDuckGo for now.
