Ramblings from another nerd on the grid
I run my share of software that isn’t made by Microsoft. Like a number of you, I downloaded and installed Firefox 3.5. I really have to because I need to make sure the Firefox experience is good on my blog and on edge.technet.com. Gotta keep those boys in check.
So today I was wondering how to flip the search engine from Google to Bing inside Firefox. The official Microsoft Bing add-on for Firefox is at https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/10434. I looked up Alessandro Catorcini and Beatrice Oltean in our internal Exchange global address list and they are both Program Managers in the Search division of Microsoft. I see some skepticism in the comments at the add-on location (as was I). So I double checked.
Anyway, after you download and install the add-on, you can make Bing the default search engine that is used for queries. Bing is rocking and you should really try it. And I am not just saying it because I work here. Enjoy.
I have been using this for weeks in IE and Firefox 3.5. I am a google convert now: Bing it is.
And Bing it is.
Have been using it for he past week.
I use it interchangeably with Google.
For deep search, Google.
For everything else, Bing.
