There’s a saying that goes something like, “If it’s not broken, don’t fix it”. I can understand switching browsers because some are faster than others – and some just suck (like Internet Explorer). But why switch search engines if you’re already using Google?
Is Bing really going to last? If so, it’s only because it’s integrated into Internet Explorer and Windows (it is, right?). Why else would it succeed? Does it do anything better than Google? Nope. Does Google do anything better than Bing? Yes. So why switch?
Microsoft should just concentrate on their operating system. Once everyone realizes that Windows isn’t the be all, end all of O.S.’s, they’re going to lose the kind of leverage that allows an endeavor like Bing to stay above water long enough to avoid catastropic failure.
Those of you who’ve switched from Google to Bing – why did you do it? I’m not expecting any replies because #1, nobody reads my blog – but #2, because I doubt anyone has really switched.
Bing. There’s a sucker born every minute.
