Google or Bing, why choose?
Over the last few weeks there's been a lot of back and forth about which is better, Google or Bing. Some of you love Microsoft's new search engine and others just couldn't bear the thought of leaving Google.
Well now you can search both at the same time. It's a pretty simple idea, similar to the Firefox add on that shows you Google results on one side and the relevant Wikipedia article on the other side. Go to www.bing-vs-google.com (or www.google-vs-bing.com) and type in your search. Hit enter and you'll see Bing results on the left and Google on the right. From there you can refine your search for either one without starting all over again, or alternatively you can use the Bing vs. Google search bar at the top to have the two search engines run a new search simultaneously.
It's a neat little tool designed by Croatian web developer and IT journalist, Domagoj Pavlesic in just a few hours. We love the idea but the URL doesn't do much for us. What's with the hyphens? People would likely have to change their homepage to bing-vs-google.com before they'd use it regularly. That said it's a great way to compare results from the two. Anyone plan on using this? I'll probably give it a shot for a few days, at least until the novelty wears off.
