Microsoft’s new Search Decision Engine called Bing is live now (in preview/beta). I thought Bing meant “Bing Is Not Google” but apparently “bing!” is the “sound of found.” Found it! Bing!

If you use Google Chrome as your browser you can make Bing your default search. Here’s how:

  1. Click the Wrench Icon in Google Chrome and click Options.
  2. Click “Manage” under Default Search.
  3. Click “Add” and make the form look like this:
  4. Now with your new Bing entry selected, click Make Default.


Go give Bing! a try. I’m going to use Bing for the whole month of June and see how it goes. I’ll blog my results.

Technical International Note: If you’re outside the US, while Bing is rolling out over the next few days (it’s literally rolling) you can temporarily force it to think you’re in the US with this Bing URL.

Feel free to post your Bing tips and impressions here in the comments, or follow @bing on Twitter.
