Bing 2.0 to be rolled out next week?

  1. Bing has had a busy few months, but if recent rumors hold any weight, a facelift may be just around the corner. Mary-Jo Foley over at ZDNet caught wind of a few Tweets that came from Microsoft's annual company meeting, which are hinting that Redmond may roll out "Bing 2.0" this fall -- and possibly as early as next week.

    Two of the Twitter pages don't work. Probably MS took them out.
    Bing has so far been pretty successful and with 2.0 it might get even more buzz.

    Good for BING... We need some competition. I mainly use Google but BING is decent and I no longer reset peoples search options to Google from Microsoft.

    I like Google's search tweaks that allow me to put words in quotes to search for an exact phrase and not just a smattering of terms. Like the following terms give better results at Google: Stargate SG1 "Season 5" "boxed set". Bing results aren't as accurate, but they get close. (My example probably can be more illuminating, but I'm not feeling well today.) I hope in Bing 2.0 they can tighten up the results.

    Anyone know how to successfully add Bing to the search engine pulldown in Opera (specifically Opera 10, but I imagine the directions are the same for any opera past version 6)

    Nevermind, its preferences, then search tab, then add, fill in the stuff but instead of putting www.bing.com as the address (as I originally did) you need to put this there: http://www.bing.com/search?q=%s&go=&form=QBLH&scope=web then it works.
