No Bling for Bing

Looks like all the hype hasn’t translated into market share for Microsoft’s “decision engine” Bing. After an initial bump in usage, Bing’s market share is now 3.39%, according to the latest figures from a NetApplications survey. Meanwhile, StatCounter says that 89.92% of all global searches were done on Google.

Wonder what Google has up their sleeve to grab the remaining market share away from competitors like Bing and Yahoo? How about date ranges, pages not yet visited, and translation? After several months of an almost continuous barrage of feature upgrades, Google dropped a few more goodies into their feature set yesterday: http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2353667,00.asp
