Why I Still Don’t Use Bing For Searching

Microsoft continue to reinvent themselves for the 21st Century but Bing lags behind compared to its competition.

Whilst seem to continue to reinvent themselves for the 21st Century and are coming out with some excellent products and services that are far more reactive to the views of their customers, there is one product that still lags far behind the competition – at least if you are not in the USA.

The Bing engine.

With my recent move to a Surface Pro 4 and various recent updates to Windows 10, I thought it a good idea to revisit using Edge as my default browser and to try to stick with Bing as the default search.

But I’m sorry Microsoft, it doesn’t work! Even when not logged in to , it consistently returns far more relevant answers as evidenced by the following search for the latest Raspberry Pi flavoured version of the Scratch programming environment “NuScratch”.
