Bing: Another competitor to Google?

Bing has been released and is in preview mode. Microsoft would like to take some internet search market share away from Google. Only time will tell if it will be able to compete with the "King" of search. It is nice to see competition in the search engine market. The more competition out there then hopefully it will create innovation. Try Bing and see if you like the Microsoft search engine. Below is a list of additional search engines you should try as an alternative to Google.
