Bing is a search engine and browser extension designed by Microsoft. The company released the official version of the Bing search engine in 2009. In that time, various changes have hit the platform, and it's now one of the world's largest search engines. Millions of people utilize Bing as their preferred search platform each month.

For everyday use, Bing provides users with an excellent experience. Searches run almost instantly on a good Internet connection. Result pages include images, websites, and even related links. In fact, Bing even includes a convenient feature that provides answers to basic questions. Results are accurate to the query more often than not.

The Bing search engine itself includes an excellent design and layout. Everything about the search engine is intuitive, and the image search is especially powerful. When using Bing on a regular basis, users will appreciate the engine's search suggestions and speed. It doesn't hurt that users can access other Microsoft platforms on most pages.

Although Bing is a great search engine on its own, Bing isn't perfect by any means. Frequent Google users may not find the search results as relevant to their needs. Bing isn't the default search engine on most browsers, so users may pass on it. Plus, the search engine wasn't as useful upon initial release, and Web users remember such things.

Bing doesn't compromise on many things in its existing form today. Users can search for Web results, images, videos, and more in seconds. In the end, the engine will prove useful for the average person and features a better design than Google's search engine. Microsoft service and platform users may prefer Bing over competing search engines.
