Early reviews of Microsoft’s Bing search engine

bing.jpgThe launch of Bing, Microsoft’s upgraded search engine, was all drum roll without a cymbal crash last week. The company announced it would be launching a new version, but Bing would not officially launch until Wednesday.

A preview version went up this morning at www.bing.com. Here are some early reviews from around the Web:

ArsTechnica says there is much to like, as well as some frustration.

TechCrunch reports positive reader comments, including “Holly [sic] crap, it doesn’t suck.”

CNET also seems won over by Bing.

The reviews are an early positive sign for Microsoft, which trails mightily in the search market. Google held 64 percent of all searches in April according to comScore. Microsoft’s share was 8.2 percent. Microsoft is calling Bing a decision engine.
